FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How has technology been used in education?Since the invention of computers, there has been a base expectation that one day they will be able to mimic and even surpass human’s cognitive processing cabilities. Talk of artificially intelligent systems that can respond intelligently can be found as far back as 1988 in the literature. Since then there has been ongoing research, testing and speculation as to how we can use technology to its fullest in assisting and improving the education process and the process of human learning in general. As computers were making progress, we integrated other media tools to enrich the classroom experience by using TV,
Projectors and transparency slides to supplement the teachers work, however all of these systems and the actually delivery of context for the information relied on the teacher ability to adapt the information to the students learning style.
Q: What role does the internet play in delivering online learning?Due to global information infrastructure improvements since 2010 it is now possible to deliver media rich internet based learning activities using DLS’ unique open architecture adaptive learning solution.
The combination of technological advancements - specialized data centers, data storage solutions, improved interoperability and management solutions make delivery of the high quality education possible online and therefore accessible anywhere to anyone with a modern internet connection.
Q: What is adaptive online learning?New research of the brain and its process has led to new and more accurate understanding of how we learn. Adaptive learning identifies which way the subject information needs to be presented in order for it to make the most sense to the student. In the same way a highly skilled teacher adapts their delivery of information based on the student’s response. In an online environment the system responds to the student answers are configured in a way as to match the responses. When a course is presented this way the student’s engagement with the process is increased due to the interactive nature of the course and its ability to provide them a personalized learning experience. These aspects allow a student to move at their own pace and so the experience is similar to one of having a personal teacher working solely with them.
Especially research shows that we learn most effectively when the curriculum is presented in a concept-based format with distinct personalized learning pathways. Each of us learns each different concept in one of the core learning styles. This ability to adjust the same subject material into different conceptual models is what a master teacher does effectively to make it easier for each student to understand, but not all teachers have the same level of skill in adapting the content for each student in a class. The same holds true for online learning until now.
Q: Why use an adaptive learning solution?DLS’ adaptive online learning platform offers multiple advantages in delivering a new level of education. The first step is in being able to replicate the essence of a highly skilled teacher’s ability to personalize a course to each student’s learning style. The cumulative advantage is delivered as using an adaptive learning model increases student retention and accuracy of information as well as course completion has been shown to increase by as much as 200-300%. Commonly, currently used online learning systems at universities are getting as low as 10-30% completion levels and that by using an adaptive learning platform completion rates are often above 80-90% (Citation)
