Adaptive, or personalized, learning is becoming the next big thing in online education. By providing each student with a custom, personalized path through courses and tracking both content covered and level of attained mastery, adaptive learning platforms hold great promise for enhancing student learning and success. The University of Central Florida (UCF) has been engaged in online learning for more than two decades and was drawn to adaptive learning based on the belief that a combination of well-designed courses and a capable adaptive learning platform could lead to increased rates of student success. This bulletin describes UCF’s approach to adaptive learning, what it has learned so far, and where it is headed.
