Using Adaptive Learning for Prework
A common approach to developing a blended program is an online component prior to coming to class. This is often driven by a logistical desire to shorten the in-class time for cost or operational reasons. One major flaw with this approach is that traditional online learning is ineffective, and participants come to class unprepared.
Adaptive learning guarantees that students master the prework material and can therefore benefit much more from the classroom component. A further benefit is that instructors can use the detailed metrics generated by our Area9 Rhapsode EDUCATOR™ to see where students found the adaptive topics easy or whether they struggled and adjust the in-class experience appropriately.
