SUNY Virtual Symposium on Adaptive Learning


Someone wrote me and asked what Adaptive Learning was.  Her is my quick answer:

“The idea of Adaptive Learning, is that there is a program monitoring the understanding/progress of the student, that can shift what their next course of action is (a reading, or quizzing, etc) based on performance.  So it has built in remediation, and possibly acceleration, depending on the actual platform.  Some of them are made by for profit publishers, and some work largely with open educational resources and funding from grants. They make an interesting case [as a tool] for helping students meet course objectives in a remote environment.”
