Group of Students Sue Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology over the Two Schools' Failure to Provide Closed Captioning for Online Courses
Feb 12 15
A group of students are suing Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology over the two schools' failure to provide closed captioning for online courses, including audio and video materials. The discrimination suit, filed on behalf of the aggrieved students, was submitted to federal court this week in Springfield, Mass. The documents were filed by lawyers with the National Association of the Deaf. Lawyers say the schools' actions -- or lack there of -- are in violation of both the Americans With Disabilities Act and Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Officials with the National Association of the Deaf said the lawsuit specifically targets Harvard and MIT because the two higher-education institutions have been at the forefront of online education. Both schools partnered to found EdX in 2012, a massive open online course provider offering hundreds of free courses and a huge archive of free educational materials.
The Broad Institute, Harvard University, The Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Editas Medicine Enter into Worldwide License Agreement
Dec 1 14
The Broad Institute, Harvard University, The Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Editas Medicine have entered into a worldwide license agreement to grant Editas access to intellectual property related to certain genome editing technology for the development of human therapeutic applications. The agreement relates to technology that engineers the CRISPR-Cas9 system-a naturally-occurring part of the bacterial immune system. Researchers at Harvard Medical School, the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, Broad Institute, MIT, the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT, and Harvard University Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS), have optimized the CRISPR-Cas9 system to allow for insertion, replacement, and regulation of targeted genes in higher organisms, with the potential to one day be used in humans. This technology has wide-ranging therapeutic potential and could lay the groundwork for treating diseases where a gene's expression needs to be altered (such as turning down CCR5 in HIV), or where a mutation needs to be repaired (such as sickle cell diseases or hemophilia). In addition to their therapeutic implications, CRISPR-Cas9 systems enable scientists to modify genes and better understand the biology of living cells and organisms.
