New forms of education are emerging that offer the potential to amplify the reach of a single educator to embrace thousands of simultaneous learners. Organizations like Khan Academy and Coursera are exploring the opportunities and challenges offered by massively open online courseware. In a classroom of thousands, tasks like assignment grading, problem generation, and student analytics can become intractable.
In this session of the 2013 Microsoft Research Faculty Summit, we explore approaches that seek to mitigate these challenges by applying machine learning, cloud computing, and other innovative technologies.
