The 2013 AMS Committee on Education (COE) meeting was held  on Friday-Saturday, October 25-26, 2013 in Washington, DC. 
The focus of the meeting was online tools in undergraduate mathematics education, and their current and potential impact on colleges and universities.  Presentations included talks by faculty who give online courses and a report on the recent NSF-DMS INGenIOus workshop.  A broad range of questions were addressed:  How interactive learning platforms can be adopted to improve student learning?  What are the new opportunities, and what are the pitfalls?  What is the cost of these projects?  How will these changes affect the academic job description?
