Online learning is going through a renaissance. The Khan Academy is reaching millions with its decidedly low-tech approach while MIT and Harvard announced a very ambitious platform called edX just this month. Proponents think we can learn from the less successful efforts of the 1990s and get it right this time.

The session was facilitated by Professor Lawrence Susskind from MIT.
