The Open Learning Initiative (OLI) at Carnegie Mellon University combines intelligent tutoring systems, virtual laboratories, simulations, and frequent opportunities for assessment and feedback to deliver dynamic, flexible, and responsive web-based instruction that fosters learning. Computing@Carnegie Mellon (C@CM) is a required 3-unit course for all incoming undergraduate students. Over the past year, C@CM has transitioned to an OLI course, and last year, 1,682 students participated in this course. This presentation will provide a high-level summary of the effectiveness of this initiative, its implementation, learning gains, and findings based on OLI system data, course evaluation responses, and qualitative observations.

Learning Objectives:
*Learn about Carnegie Mellon's required introductory computer education course that has evolved over the past 22 years, which is now reengineered in OLI environment
*Learn about a powerful feature of OLI instruction, embedded tracking and assessment of instructional user activities, which can be leveraged to drive feedback for continuous evaluation and improvement
*Learn about course content that's controlled by a campus-wide advisory committee
