The Digital Education Incubator (formerly Digital Learning Initiative) helps BU advance its global reputation and the value we provide to students by supporting the design and development of innovative learning projects.
We seek out faculty, academic administrators, and department administrators with ideas for innovative learning experiments that can advance the value we offer to our students. We fund and support innovative learning projects across Boston University, on both the Charles River and Medical campuses and work with them to develop and roll out their concepts.
Highlights of projects we worked on in fiscal year 2017 include:
8 New Projects Launched
1 Lifelong Learning Portal
2 Active Learning Projects
2 Digital Infrastructure Projects
10 Projects in Development
1 Lifelong Learning Project
2 Advising/Mentoring Projects

8 MOOC Reruns or Learner-Paced Projects
1 Project-Based Learning Program

We always welcome your ideas on how technology can be used to enhance our value proposition or reach new groups of learners. We will make ourselves available to discuss your ideas on an ongoing basis.
We provide extensive support to develop and launch new courses.
