“Adaptive learning is the number one technology that can make a difference to corporate learning.” – The Gartner Group
We all agree that in-class training is the gold standard. But it has some clear downsides:
- Travel and entertainment costs
- Time out of field
In order to combat this, companies have turned to E-Learning platforms. These have the upside of eliminating travel and entertainment, however they:
- Can have enormous up-front costs
- Use a “one size fits all approach”- meaning everyone, regardless of skill level, gets exposed to the same material. This wastes the learner’s time, decreases interest and still takes them out of the field for long blocks of time, wasting valuable resources
WHAT IF WE COULD QUICKLY DETERMINE THE KEY KNOWLEDGE GAPS FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL LEARNER, AND ONLY COVER THAT MATERIAL?
Adaptive learning does just that!
It quickly ascertains what the learner already knows, proves that they know it, and moves on to a new topic area. When the student is not proficient, or worse thinks they are proficient, adaptive learning drills down into that subject matter to assure complete fluency.
How does it work?
