The Digital Learning Initiative would like to thank everyone who joined us for our half-day workshop on February 27, 2015 about MOOCs, Blended Learning, and Flipped Classrooms at BU: What have we learned? Our workshop consisted of short presentations and panels where both faculty and course assistants who have participated in MOOCs and blended learning efforts at BU shared their experiences and lessons learned. Below are recordings of the two panels in case you missed the workshop or would like to listen to our conversation again.
