RIT’s Strategic Plan: “Greatness Through Difference (2015-2025)” articulates that we will become the university that best utilizes educational technology to improve access, maintain academic quality, and achieve desired learning outcomes while making college education more affordable and accessible for all (DM IV.2). Similarly the plan emphasizes the importance of global engagement, as measured by the breadth and size of its international student and alumni populations (DM III.1). It also highlights the importance of a comprehensive marketing campaign in enhancing awareness of the university’s extraordinary history, its unique character, and its exceptional record of success (DM III.10).
The university has identified edX as a suitable partner in exploring the use of its global open access educational platform as a means towards achieving these aims.
The ILI provides this site to keep the RIT community updated on this initiative (RIT login required).
