Online Learning through Adaptive Remediation

By Idl Systems

The first generation of education technology was used to provide online learning experience. However, there was a gap in the expectation and the performance; as a result the e-learning drop out rate then became a serious concern. The world was waiting for the next generation technology in e-learning…

IDL Systems has provided a breakthrough with their adaptive learning technology—the Adaptive Learning system. This technology was developed through the years of research in the disciplines of cognitive psychology, brain and cognitive science, and artificial intelligence. It thus bridges the gap between the Learning Management systems and online courses.

This next generation technology creates and delivers online courses which adapt to the personal needs and styles of each student. It brings the power of the computer to interact directly with each student, where the student gets immediate and continuous intelligent feedback on his or her progress.

Educators have long understood that different people learn in different ways. Educational scientists have developed many learning models to describe the way people learn. From the many tens of models that are debated in the academic literature, IDL Systems has synthesized "five learning styles" that represent the broad spectrum of ways the people learn. These styles have been accepted and appreciated by all educational scientists world over. The five learning styles are apprenticeship, incidental, inductive, deductive and discovery.

IDL Systems has a unique three-dimensional teaching model, which integrates media, various learning styles and interactivities to create engaging learning environments.

Unique Features and Benefits

IDL Systems offers accredited courses by New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) through its Commission on Institutions of Higher Learning.

IDL Systems offers Adaptive Blended Learning (ABL)—a combination of online learning and classroom sessions.

As a student progresses through a course, IDL's Adaptive Learning Server continuously collects data on the student's performance, steering the student into the learning style that best fits him or her and ensuring that every student masters the material.

In addition to a student's learning style preference, IDL's adaptive learning system also takes into account the student's preference for delivery media - text, audio, video, simulation, and interactivity.

IDL Systems have partnered with publishers such as McGraw Hill, John Wiley and Houghton and Mifflin to provide rich online courses by using quality content.

IDL system has done a research on the completion rate of their courses. It concluded that that IDL's online courses have 91% completion rate as against the industry norm (30 to 40%). IDL systems has been very successful in curbing the dismal e-learning drop of rate.
