Personalization And Analytics: The Future Of Education?

The specifics of today's deal are this: Pearson will move the content of two series of college-readiness products for the north American market--MyLab and Mastering series--onto Knewton's "adaptive engine." The first integrated products should reach the market in mid-2012, says Greg Tobin, Pearson's president of math, English, and student success for Pearson Higher Education.

 

Ferreira hopes Knewton will have automated the process of tagging content. An automated tagging process would make it significantly easier for any content developer--from a teacher to an organization--to move its content onto Knewton's platform. Ferreira envisions a scenario where Knewton provides an iTunes Store-like service, offering up a dazzling array of content nuggets that can be mashed together. Content creators could get paid whenever someone chooses to use a piece they contributed.

TechCrunch | Knewton Strikes A Deal To Power Pearson’s Digital Education Courses

TechCrunch | Knewton Strikes A Deal To Power Pearson’s Digital Education Courses | Adaptive Learning | Scoop.it
Coming on the heels of its $33 million series D financing last month, adaptive learning startup Knewton is announcing a very large deal with one of its investors, educational publisher Pearson

 

http://diigo.com/0kyzz

For Pearson, adaptive learning points beyond the textbook as the main thing it sells. Knewton will have access to its entire library, which means that it may present passages from different textbooks and related courseware depending on the situation. The ability to mix and match lessons and chapters from different sources can potentially create more powerful learning experiences, but it also upends the traditional educational publishing model. The product being sold will no longer be the textbook, it will be the learning experience pulled from multiple textbooks on the fly according to each student’s needs at the time..

Apollo Group's CEO Discusses Q4 2011 Results - Earnings Call Transcript - Seeking Alpha

Regarding adaptive learning, the Carnegie Learning acquisition which closed in early September, allows us to accelerate our efforts to incorporate adaptive learning into our academic platform and provide tools to help raise student achievement in math. Math is often an area of fundamental skills gap when students enter postsecondary education. If we can help our students succeed in math, we believe we can further improve retention and graduation rates. Right now, our primary focus is on integrating the Carnegie software curriculum into our math courses. With the Carnegie team expertise and technology, we're working to incorporate adaptive learning to individually address the student's developmental needs, while continuously assessing comprehension, resulting in a more effective learning experience.

Pearson and Knewton Team Up to Make Learning Personal

Pearson and Knewton Team Up to Make Learning Personal | Adaptive Learning | Scoop.it

One of the largest textbook publishers in the world is planning to make its digital course offerings more data-driven and individualized.. Knewton plans to power Pearson’s product MyLabs, which has more than 750 titles.

Knewton and Pearson will work together to develop full course solutions that facilitate blended learning in classrooms.

Those courses won’t be released until at least 2013 and will likely look much like math remediation classes that Knewton has already launched at six universities.
