Getting Smart Podcast

Sep 22, 2023

We’ve recently released a new publication that synthesizes years of research on AI and its impact on teaching and learning. You can find it at

On this episode of the Getting Smart Podcast, Nate McClennen is joined by Anant Agarwal, MIT Professor, Chief Platform Officer at 2U and Founder and CEO of edX, an online learning platform founded by Harvard and MIT. In 2020, Anant shared the story and vision for EdX from inception to present and its effort to increase access, reduce cost, and implement modularity in the higher education ecosystem. So much has happened in the last three years, that we thought it would be great to hear from Anant again (after his first time on the show)  to get his sense of AI and how it will both play a role in both teaching in higher education as well as a topic for learning in higher education.



Key Takeaways: 

  • Ethics must be taught alongside Ai technology.

  • The next phase of iteration is not only about scale, but about personalization.
