You can access course materials at no cost to the student or to you the instructor. Students work at their own pace, and can review modules before exams. OLI's learning platform gives the instructor targeted feedback as the class progresses, which helps provide a red flag when students need more practice or if they are mastering a topic. Instructors can help design and review course materials with the open learning initiative. Instructors can take a tour before signing up to use the platform.
