E10 Session Podcast: Distance vs. Distributed Education: Bringing the Campus to the Student

Advances in integrating the worlds of bits and atoms are challenging assumptions of scarcity that are implicit in the organization of advanced technical education and investigation. In this session, MIT's Neil Gershenfeld discusses the ideas behind this revolution and their implications for improving educational opportunities. Realizing this promise will require revisiting many current practices, including accrediting networks rather than locations, organizing individuals instead of institutions, formalizing informal learning, and creating corresponding career paths. Streaming video for this session is also available.
