Rochester, NY – March 17, 2014 – Adapt Courseware, the provider of comprehensive adaptive multimedia that individualizes each student’s learning experience, is joining an impressive line-up of speakers at the New Directions in Online Learning event, which provides a forum for college and university chancellors, presidents, deans, directors, and other senior leaders to discuss technologies and strategies to grow their online learning programs. Adapt Courseware will present its research on competency-based, adaptive learning, and the double digit improvements in completion and retention rates that schools are experiencing when leveraging adaptive multimedia.
“This event draws thought leaders and innovators from some of the largest and most respected online programs in the country,” said Hank Bowman, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of Adapt Courseware. “The presentations and conversations will likely give schools new ideas when it comes to delivering a valuable, personalized online learning experience that addresses individual student needs, yet scales in a way that supports growth. Multimedia, interactive and analytic technologies are supporting this transformation in education, and we are excited that they are part of the dialog.”
Bowman will share data from the company’s white paper, “Improving Course Completion and Student Retention – Adapt Courseware Backgrounder and Results for the 2012-2013 Academic Year.” The published results demonstrate how adaptive multimedia can measurably improve course completion and term-over-term student retention when compared to more conventional online learning methods.
Educators will see how their peers are using adaptive multimedia to evolve the learning experience from static to active. They will also gain insight into key instructional design principles that foster a more effective and efficient learning experience, and they will learn how to systematically increase student completion and retention.
“Adaptive Multimedia’s Proven Impact on Student Retention” takes place on April 1st at 12:00 p.m. New Directions in Online Learning is coming to Boston from March 31st – April 2nd. The impressive line-up of speakers also includes leaders from Western Governors University, UCLA Extension, University of Maryland University College, Babson Survey Research Group, Drexel University Online, University of Florida Distance Learning, Northeastern University, and more.
