Tuck Brings Online Learning Into the MBA Classroom

Tuck Brings Online Learning Into the MBA Classroom

Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business is transforming the way it teaches many of its MBA core classes, delivering portions of them online via video lectures, and using online quizzes and discussion boards. About a dozen Tuck professors are participating in the effort, using videos to teach introductory material in classes such as Managerial Economics, Statistics for Managers, Corporate Finance, and Operations Management, the school said. Beyond the core classes, the school has experimented with using videos for two of its elective courses: Retail Pricing and Service Operations.

Tuck Dean Paul Danos, who spearheaded the pilot program this school year, says he got the idea after doing an online tutorial with his granddaughter on Khan Academy, the nonprofit education website that offers thousands of free YouTube-based lessons.
