With the rise of Massive Open Online Courses, anyone can watch the best teachers from elite universities across the globe - anywhere, anytime, on any device. It is clear that the 500 year old "sage on stage" model of higher education is broken. 

If our UQ campus interactions don't add anything to the student MOOC experience, then we've failed. Our goal in Think101x is not to replace the campus experience with an online experience. Instead, we want to use our edX course to free up our time and resources to offer the best on campus experince possible. 

If we have a clear vision for what a vibrant and rich campus life looks like, and how we can use edX courses to help us get there, then we'll be on our way to providing a genuine UQ Advantage.
