On April 7 and 8, 2015, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University hosted a summit about online learning and its role in shaping the future of higher education.

At this invitation-only event for institutional senior officers and academic leaders in online education, we focused on the opportunities and challenges arising during this exciting time of change to the established models of higher education. The summit comprised a mix of plenary sessions and break-out groups, with facilitated conversations to generate key questions for senior leaders to take back to campus.

We thank our colleagues for joining us in Cambridge to share ideas and collaborate to help shape the future of residential higher education.
