From MOOCs To Minerva: Higher Education And Beyond - Calvin Lemley, Forbes

The Minerva format focuses on seminar-based lessons, with instructors implementing methods such as pop quizzes, cold calls, and asking questions that students are required to answer, then called on to defend those answers. This would also cut down on time-wasting in class, with the instructor able to immediately quiz students on course material and just as quickly be able to receive and tabulate student responses, as well as streamlining the process for separating students into groups for cooperative assignments.
