An Insider's view of edX

What projects are you most excited about?

My work focuses on enabling course teams at partner institutions to create high-quality learning experiences on edX.org. Right now couldn't be a more critical time for this work as we ramp up the amount of Master's degrees we are offering this Fall. I work with faculty, instructional designers, media producers, and project managers.
