If you’re moving to remote instruction because of COVID-19, or even planning for the possibility, OLI may be able to help.
Consultations and Low-cost Materials for Institutions Affected by COVID-19
Moving a course online is hard, but uncertainty about your transition is harder; we at OLI are helping a number of universities, including our own colleagues at Carnegie Mellon, make the transition — we know just how challenging it is.
In light of the dramatic impact COVID-19 is having on education, we’re focusing our efforts on supporting affected institutions. Our OER courseware combines interactive textbooks with learning activities, assessments, and rich simulations. The materials are organized into units and modules that are aligned to learning objectives, so you can select OLI content to match your needs and plug it in to your learning management system.
OLI bridges some of the distance in remote teaching by providing learning analytics you can use to identify and address your students’ misconceptions. To complement these analytics, our courses incorporate metacognitive activities that ask students to assess their own learning and to share out their muddiest points.
Use the resources below to help you make decisions about using OLI, get support, and learn more.
OLI courseware can help to support you in your move to online and fill in some of the gaps created by the rapid move out of the classroom and onto the internet.
Schedule a one-on-one consultation, so you can tell us about your needs and ask questions.
The larger community
We’re one part of a larger puzzle. If you need to get more advice on transitioning online, our colleagues at CMU’s Eberly Center have prepared resources to help. And institutions across the U.S. are sharing materials to offer more guidance and support.
