About this Video

Which teacher would you rather have: a lecturer who doesn’t take any questions, or a tutor who works with you 1-on-1? Everyone prefers the tutor, but the millions of online learners around the world are stuck with the lecturer. After all, if you want to teach a million students at once, it’s a lot easier to make a one-size-fits-all video than it is to design a personalized experience that’s tailored to each student. Wissner-Gross is changing all that. After reviewing state-of-the-art scalable learning, he shows how a single tutor can give personalized instruction to a billion students at once.
