Open Leaning Initiative's logo

The Open Learning Initiative (OLI) is a grant-funded group at Carnegie Mellon University, offering innovative online courses to anyone who wants to learn or teach. The aim is to create high-quality courses and contribute original research to improve learning and transform higher education. The key goals are to support better learning and instruction with high-quality, scientifically-based, classroom-tested online courses and materials, to share our courses and materials openly and freely so that anyone can learn, and to develop a community of use, research, and development to allow for the continuous evaluation, improvement, and growth of courses and course materials.
