Slate recently profiled the blackboard (they are Slate, after all…), calling it “the most ingenious teaching device ever invented.”
Although our position in the Office of Digital Learning has us thinking about devices with more pixels and wires, we still appreciate the beauty and utility of the modest chalk and blackboard classroom.
If you’re in the mood to watch an MIT professor expertly wield chalk against slate, here are a few OCW favorites:
Highlights of Calculus by Prof. Gilbert Strang
Quantum Physics I by Prof. Allan Adams
Circuits and Electronics by Prof. Anant Agarwal
These and many others are among our collection of audio and video lectures.
