During the Feb. 4, 2016 Stanford Faculty Senate meeting, John Mitchell, Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning, introduced several initiatives his office is taking to promote online learning on campus. In his presentation, Mitchell cited “American Prophet: The Inner Life and Global Vision of Martin Luther King, Jr.,” a new online course offered through Stanford's OpenEdX platform taught by Dr. Clayborne Carson, director of the King Institute. The course uses primary sources to offer insight into Dr. King's private and public life. Mitchell remarked that the class is "offering an invaluable service to the general public by introducing them to documents from Stanford's King Papers Project."
