We’re thrilled to welcome MIT Academic Media Production Services (AMPS) to the Office of Digital Learning umbrella.  We’ve enjoyed a long and productive relationship between MIT OpenCourseWare and AMPS and we’re looking forward to the unique expertise they bring to the ODL mix.  Here’s some of the MIT News coverage:

MIT’s Academic Media Production Services joins the Office of Digital Learning
Brings video expertise and infrastructure to ODL.

Effective July 1, Academic Media Production Services (AMPS), the MIT Libraries‘ unit responsible for video production, distance education and MIT TechTV, will become part of the Office of Digital Learning (ODL).

The ODL, formed in November 2012, is comprised of MITx, MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW), and the Office of Educational Innovation and Technology (OEIT).
