New Report from Ithaka: “Personalizing Post-Secondary Education: An Overview of Adaptive Learning Solutions for Higher Education”
The number of adaptive learning providers has expanded in recent years, with both start-up companies and established publishers offering products for the growing higher education market. Yet, for an institution seeking an adaptive learning provider—or a researcher seeking to understand the market—there was no broad overview to serve as an entry point. This report, which began as part of an internal effort to understand the landscape of providers, the products they offer, and which institutions are using them, aims to fill that gap.
“Personalizing Post-Secondary Education: An Overview of Adaptive Learning Solutions for Higher Education” reviews 13 adaptive learning providers, focusing on the high-level technical and pedagogical characteristics of their solutions, their business models, their content models, and their partnerships. We hope that by compiling and organizing crucial product and organizational information in one place, we will give those interested in adopting or studying adaptive technologies a place to start.
