Adaptive Learning Tools in the UMass Amherst Classroom

In 2015 University of Massachusetts Amherst began a pilot of adaptive learning tools. Adaptive learning is an educational method which uses computers, smart phones, and tablets as interactive teaching devices, and tailors resources to the unique needs of each learner. Computers adapt the presentation of educational material according to students’ learning needs, as indicated by their responses to questions, tasks and experiences.
