After the MOOC comes the GAIN - Global Adaptive Instructional Network
Concurrent Session 6
The static MOOC model has not evolved since its widespread adoption in 2012. This session will explore the development of a dynamic Global Adaptive Instructional Network (GAIN) to create the means to personalize the learning experience for every learner everywhere.
In this session, we will explore the idea of developing a Global Adaptive Instructional Network (GAIN). This network will create a marketplace for faculty to share instructional resources, profit from their intellectual property, and configure their own courses in the platform. Using those instructional resources, the GAIN will employ adaptive techiques to recommend the right lesson to the right student at the right time in order to enable student success in a course. This will result in the personalization of the instructional process in contrast to the existing static MOOC model where all students have the same learning experience.
