Adaptive Courseware @ CSU

APLU OVERVIEW

In July 2016, the Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT) joined seven other land-grant institutions in the Accelerating Adaptive Learning Courseware at Public Research Universities Grant offered by the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU).

Adaptive courseware offers students a personalized learning environment based on learning goals set by the instructor. As the student works in the platform, it adjusts the material based on the student's progress.

Over forty faculty partnered with TILT instructional designers to incorporate adaptive courseware and research-based teaching practices into their courses. Between Fall 2016-Fall 2019, over 33,500 students used adaptive courseware across 322 sections.
