Topic: Online Student Success
Adult students possess varied levels of pre-knowledge when they enroll in online courses. These students are best served with a personalized learning plan that takes them through course materials based on the skills and knowledge they bring to their courses. At Patten, we use an initial assessment to identify prior ability across a complete set of course objectives. Because course objectives are mapped to learning resources, this enables us to create a customized learning plan for each student.
How does one balance scalability with personalization? This presentation provides an overview of a model used to guide decision making, and examples of how this can be effectively and efficiently done. Presenters demonstrate the application of the Scalable Personalization approach and engage participants in a discussion about how this may be applied across settings.
