DartmouthX Teaching Theater
Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH
EdX is a non-profit online initiative founded by Harvard University and MIT focused on broadening access to high quality education and advancing teaching and learning through research. EdX achieves this mission as an online learning destination and massive online open courseware (MOOC) provider. Jones Architecture renovated an existing computer classroom to accommodate Dartmouth College’s EdX offering, “DartmouthX.” Embedded within the Jones Media Center, DartmouthX strives to generally expand access to learning, also seeking to engage Dartmouth lifelong learners and advance and enhance teaching and learning through research, experimentation and collaboration. The new recording studio and accompanying control room is designed as a resource for faculty to use in recording and distributing online course modules.
“Dartmouth’s collaboration with Jones Architecture was a model renovation project from start to finish. Jones was able to hear our needs and ideas for the space and translate them into concrete designs that enabled us to actually budget and build a media production studio that is both versatile and state-of-the-art.”
