Supporting Student Learning: The Open Learning Initiative and ASSISTments

One of the most powerful features of technology-enhanced learning environments is that they enable us to embed ongoing formative assessment and feedback into instructional activities. This Web seminar will demonstrate how two projects, the Open Learning Initiative at Carnegie Mellon University and ASSISTments, a Carnegie Mellon and Worcester Polytechnic Institute collaboration, use this feature to create dynamic, flexible, and responsive learning environments that foster robust learning.
