Innovative Online Learning Technology: An Adaptive Learning Courseware Pilot Study
Concurrent Session 5
This study evaluates the effect of an online learning tool, adaptive learning courseware. It is focused on the usefulness and effectiveness of the courseware, and its impact on student achievement and success, assessing positive results from the use of an adaptive learning courseware, namely CogBooks.
This study focuses on the influence of adaptive learning courseware, and its impact on student achievement in general Biology courses. A PowerPoint Presentation including the informing of how effective adaptive learning courseware is and a demonstration of the courseware in action, by going the courseware website and showing an active general Biology course using the courseware, will be presented. Interactive questions and answers will be given, accessing the audience take on the courseware, furthering the research.
The goals are:
• To highlight research that discloses how the use of adaptive learning courseware adapts to different learning styles, confirming its learning modules.
• To disclose an adaptive learning courseware, namely CogBooks, confirming its effectiveness in student achievement and success.
• To gain the audience participation through an interactive questions and answers period.
