Super 30 founder Anand Kumar gets Teaching Proposal from MIT

Super 30 founder Anand Kumar has got a proposal from MIT in the USA for joining their open online initiative for teaching Mathematics.

Super 30 revealed that Mr. Anand has got a teaching proposal from Edx, a massive open online course (MOOC) provider and an initiative of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard University to become a part of it.

Edx provides online university-level courses in a broad range of disciplines, some of which can be availed for free to students across the globe in English, Spanish, French and Mandarin.

Edx also conducts research into learning on the basis of usage of its platform by the audience.

Anant Aggarwal, Professor, MIT, has written to Kumar as to how his Super 30 initiative was on similar lines as Edx and the two could reach out to more and more students by working in alliance.

MIT Professor further stated that the Institute was delighted to explore how they might be able to work in alliance by bringing the Super 30 content onto their platform.
