Adaptive Learning Systems: The State of the Field

On Tuesday, March 24, Michael Madaio presented a C21U Seminar on adaptive learning systems, examining the current set of providers, their capabilities, and their limitations.

There has recently been great promise and interest in the use of adaptive learning systems to provide personalized course content, tailored to the ability levels and pace of individual students. Yet, not all the technologies in this space provide the same capabilities. In this seminar Madaio discussed case studies from other institutions using adaptive learning systems, present research on their efficacy in improving student learning outcomes and student retention, and discussed implications for faculty and administrators interested in evaluating, selecting, and implementing an adaptive learning system.
