Effectively apply adaptive learning systems in ways that engage students and accurately measure the learning that takes place. Essentials of Designing for Adaptive Learning demystifies the systems used and explains the functions of components in an adaptive learning process. The information provided is critical for choosing adaptive platforms to fit the needs of learners and for building learning paths that facilitate the best that learning technology has to offer. Take learning beyond the everyday and create a learning experience that is unique and extraordinary for each individual.

In this program, with an approach that is agnostic to particular systems or products, you will explore both the conceptual and practical aspects of working elements found in adaptive learning. With this knowledge serving as a foundation, you will then apply effective processes for creating and constructing adaptive learning paths that accurately teach as well as measure skills and competencies directly mapped to learning objectives.

Along the way, you will discover the immense benefits of adaptive learning and how it can be utilized to overcome a number of the challenges facing instruction, content limitations, and true assessment. All of this will be applied with an emphasis on the learner experience. This program is ideal for both professionals beginning to explore the power of Adaptive Learning and for those already working with Adaptive technology that are looking to make their courses more effective.
