Northeastern & Shoreline w/ CogBooks Explore Adaptive Learning
Northeastern College of Professional Studies, Shoreline Community College and CogBooks Ltd. create the Adaptive Learning Market Acceleration Program. The program, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, will transform online education. By placing the student at the center of the learning experience, the program adapts with each student’s individualized learning pace. The Northeastern and Shoreline teams are bringing adaptive learning to 4 Shoreline classes in January 2014. With this collaborative effort from Northeastern, Shoreline and CogBooks, students can earn Shoreline credits which are transferable to Northeastern programs both online and on Northeastern’s Seattle campus.
The Dean of Northeastern University College of Professional Studies and Vice President for professional education, John LaBrie, stated:
“As one of the first universities to employ online learning in our programs since 1998, Northeastern University College of Professional Studies knows not only what makes online programs successful – for both students and the faculty who teach them – but has a vested interest in the future of online learning.”
Kevin Bell, Project Lead and Executive Director of curriculum development and deployment at the College stated:
“We are excited to collaborate on such an innovative learning technology that will enhance the learning environment leveraging the best of emerging technologies wedded to solid pedagogy and design. We reviewed a number of the adaptive learning providers and the Cogbooks platform really impressed with its potential to personalize and support learners.”
