Welcome to the OLI Programming Community

OLI’s Programming Community unites educators from San Marcos to Stockholm to research, collaborate, and innovate in computer science education. Since July 2020, we’ve met monthly to hear from our members about challenges they face, using OLI more effectively, and heard from SPLICE

Throughout 2021, we aim to dive deeper into the mechanics of teaching and learning computer science. We’ll compare skill breakdowns, look at activities, and co-design a broader OLI Programming Toolset. 

Meeting and Topic Schedule


The OLI Programming Community meets on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 10:30amEST.
