J. Philipp Schmidt 

I create tools, platforms, and institutions for learning. My core design principle is generosity.

I am based at the MIT Media Lab, where I work on learning innovation (MLx, Unhangouts, Learning Creative Learning) as a Director's Fellow. I am the Executive Director of Peer 2 Peer University (P2PU), a non-profit organization and online community, which I co-founded. I served on the founding board of the OpenCourseWare Consortium and co-authored the Cape Town Open Education Declaration.

I live in Boston and miss Cape Town. I make a mean Spaghetti Aglio Olio. I infrequently blog at Sharing Nicely and DML Central.

I lazily borrowed the basic CSS for this page, from here.
