Big Data Scientist, Abel Sanchez, a scientist and professor at MIT gave a speech at TEDxNatick, sharing about the much needed changes within the global higher education environment today.

The current higher education system does not seem to have differed much from a thousand years ago when higher education was first offered as a place where people could go and learn. However, a thousand years later, with the emergence of the Internet and the launch of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC), the need for an actual college education has been questioned.

Listen to what Professor Sanchez has to say and the changes he has made to his teaching practices.
