Are you aware of adaptive learning? You should be!

For as long as there have been classrooms, students have been trying to learn.

The success of their efforts has often been attributed to their teacher, their learning style or their affinity with the subject.

But how often do we attribute students’ success or failure in the classroom to a computer program? This scenario is becoming increasingly likely, thanks to adaptive learning.

In one study of adaptive learning students achieved a 15% improvement in success rates. In another study failure rates in a course at the University of New South Wales reduced from 31% to 7%.

So what is adaptive learning and how is it different to computer-based learning we are already familiar with?
