“Changing the Game’s Rules: From Scalable Efficiency to Scalable Learning”
Until now, it was the leaders and organizations that managed to do it cheaper and faster than the competition who won the game. These rules worked well in a more or less linear and predictable world. In a highly unpredictable world with extreme uncertainties, those who win the game are the leaders and organizations that manage to scale learning, that is, that are able to learn and unlearn faster and better than the competition.

How assessment design can eliminate the need for digital proctoring
The shift to fully remote learning during the pandemic raised concerns over an assumed increase in cheating, leading many schools to use 3rd party digital proctoring services. Given the costs, and privacy and equity issues, we focused our efforts on prevention of dishonest behaviors instead of finding ways to catch them. We will present data-driven techniques for course design and assessment that balance maximizing the potential to learn and minimizing the temptation to cheat.

”Blender": A smart tool for empowering teachers in blended learning scenarios
Even with the best technology there is no substitute for great teachers. The integration of online with traditional in-person activities presents a fundamental change in the way teachers, and students, approach the learning experience and it can be difficult for teachers to monitor and evaluate their students’ progress. "Blender" is tailored to these challenges, and processes data already collected by the edX LMS into statistical values, allowing teachers to use that information to make appropriate decisions.
