Something Old. Something New: Supporting Lecture Delivery with Digital Tools. Expanding Communities of Practice with Social Media. How can we use new technologies of distribution and social support to create effective and pedagogically useful online teaching environments? This paper offers an in depth analysis of the experience of online learning offered by Harvard University, Penn State University and MIT. It asks what lessons we should consider when adapting new technologies to old teaching methodologies, and more importantly, how these environments may change the way we teach.
