The education system of any school/institution is said to be robust when all the students are able to achieve their full potential across the dimension. Today’s scenario is totally opposite where learning has taken a back seat and exams are prioritized more. This has resulted in falling standards of education. Neither their creativity is nurtured nor their logic and problem-solving abilities. The education systems are very rusty and self-absorbed. Thus, students are not able to gain the skills required in the real world. This brings me to write this article on adaptive learning in the Learning Management System.
Concept of adaptive learning was in obscurity for a long time in education space, which now has been revived. According to Wikipedia, Adaptive Learning is an educational method which uses computer algorithms to orchestrate the interaction with the learner and deliver customized resources and learning activities to address the unique needs of each learner. What makes it different from the conventional method is the personalized environment, the Learning Management System provides to each and every learner.
There are various software and so-called plugins which when integrated with the Learning Management System will create an adaptive learning environment and personalized learning space for every student.
So how does this help a student?
Below are some of the benefits that adaptive learning can provide when merged with the Learning Management System.
Adaptive learning decreases the gaps in education and understanding in the class. It will help instructors to track the performance of the students, marking their strong and weak spot conspicuous to students. Based on these insights customized course of action can be made for individual students. This will increase the productivity of students and will also make the institute more efficient in the way they function.
Every child is different.
Some students can learn better by reading the materials, some by watching videos or listening audios. The Learning Management System provides Flexibility in terms of the type of content the student desires to learn from.
Thus, this can result in a much better academic outcome. With adaptive learning integration, the student can be analyzed in real time and provided with the best course of action to achieve his/her educational goals.
The Adaptive learning technology can check how much was actually taught during the sessions and how much did the students gain out of it. Every Interactions and Activity are analyzed in adaptive learning to give instant feedback. Students can test their knowledge conscientiously with projects and assignments. Progress based on these feedbacks will in-turn motivate the students to learn.
The idea of adaptive learning with learning management system makes the learning process far more engaging and in student’s interest. With adaptive learning technologies students are provided with the right content at the right time, which seemingly boosts the student’s involvement towards studies and learning becomes more fun than ever before.
Thus, with the adaptive learning technology embedded with the learning management system can certainly improve student’s performance and more importantly make them enjoy and devour the process of learning.
