Title: A Conversation With 2 Developers of Personalized-Learning Software

Abstract/Quotes:
"Each shopper gets a customized experience when he or she visits Amazon. A similar trend is taking hold in education. One key company developing technology to personalize learning is a start-up called Knewton. Universities like Arizona State teach mathematics using Knewton's Web-based platform, which mines performance and behavioral data to build a profile for each student and deliver recommendations about what learning activity he or she should do next. The publishing company Pearson is also augmenting its products with Knewton's recommendations." - from the Source
