What sets OLI apart?

OLI is a collection of evidence-based tools and approaches to learning that are proven to boost student success, and enable instructors to be more effective.

OLI’s proven results

An evidence-based design is manifested in OLI’s content, instructional design,  tools,  and delivery platform.

Independent and internal studies have shown our approach to be highly effective, evaluating courses using actual student performance in real classrooms.

Start using OLI courses with your students

Sign up for an OLI instructor account, and while you do, you can choose the course(s) you’d like to evaluate.

Create an account

OLI courses work in any kind of teaching scenario: traditional face-to-face class, online, flipped, hybrid, homeschool, etc.

Once your instructor account has been approved, use these instructions to set up a course for your students or to evaluate the content:

SET UP YOUR OLI COURSE

Customize your OLI course to check out how well the material aligns to your needs — the learning objectives, topic areas, assessments, and activities are all available for your evaluation. If you’re ready to get started with students, you can use that course right away.

Prepare your course: If your evaluation course content already meets your needs, you can use it with your students. If not, you can abandon the evaluation course and set up a new one with settings to suit your needs.

Choose your delivery method: Single sign-on (SSO) in your learning management system, or logging in on the OLI website (NOTE: an OLI course can use only one delivery method, not both):

  1. SSO method: Use your school’s learning management system (LMS), such as Blackboard, Canvas, Moodle, or D2L.
  2. “OLI Log in” method: Host your course on the OLI website. No special arrangements needed.

Student enrollment depends on the delivery method you chose:

  1. SSO method: When your course is integrated with your LMS, students enroll using single sign-on link. Students click the OLI course link and they automatically enroll.
  2. “OLI Sign in” method: If your course is OLI-hosted, your students must create accounts on the OLI website and enroll in your course using your Course Key.
