The MIT Council for Educational Technology (MITCET) and the Office of Digital Learning (ODL) are pleased to announce iCampusAccessibility as the grand prize winner and Team a14z as the runner-up of the 2015 iCampus Student Prize competition.
In the 2015 competition, students were asked to “Imagine MIT” … 20 years in the future. Submissions addressed what education at MIT might look like in 20 years. And, how much student life might change and what technologies we might be using.

The grand prize winning iCampusAccessibility team of William Li, ‘G and Dhruv Jain, ‘G provided a vision for a more accessible MIT. And runner-up Team a14z with members Colin McDonnell, ‘16; John Peurifoy, ’18; Gabriel Ginorio, ’18 and Sam Van Cise, ’18 explored the exponential future provided by computers and virtual reality to change the campus experience.
