Adaptive Learning Systems

Adaptive Learning Systems are a wonderful tool to provide personalized learning applications and services to the individual learner. An adaptive web-based educational system typically collects data about the student working with the system.  An Adaptive Learning System adapts to individual’s learning preferences and provides continuous intelligent feedback to maximize individualized learning performance. An educational Adaptive Learning System must include the following elements:

  • A pedagogical framework.
  • Multiple learning strategies and pathways.
  • Continuous monitoring and feedback on student performance.
  • Statistical inference to reach a final learning strategy that works for an individual learner by “mass-customization”.

Many adaptive learning systems are available and vary by content and cost.  Some systems work with some browsers and operating systems better than others. Five things you will want to take into consideration if you are contemplating purchasing a license for your school or classroom are:

  • Ease of use
  • Reports
  • Speed
  • Security
  • Cost
