The eLearning evolution: Is adaptive learning the future?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adaptive_learning
Many online language courses adopt a linear approach when it comes to their structure; a series of lessons and units, and a set path the student must follow. Every student must follow that very same path.
We must always remember that no two students are the same. There are those who can afford to invest up to an hour a day into learning online, whereas others only have five, precious minutes. There are those whose motivation to learn a new language is based on expanding their professional horizons and improving their CV, while others simply seek to enrich their
travelling adventures, or because they want to know more about foreign cultures and customs. Some have the ability to absorb vocabulary like a sponge, yet fall short of grasping certain grammatical intricacies.
I work for www.lingualia.com
, a social network for language learning that uses artificial intelligence to personalise each and every course to match the exact requirements of individual students.
Lingualia understands its users and makes its own decisions to tailor unique learning experiences. Both the content and the structure of the course shift and meld themselves as required, guiding the student towards a more successful and streamlined progression. This isn’t a linear course and it isn’t the same for everyone. This course adapts to the student, not the
other way around.
Lingualia will focus on the areas which need more work, for example vocabulary rather than grammar, personalising the content to match students’ motivation. Depending the students’ motivation, Lingualia can provide learning material geared towards business or tourism while taking into account the time the users have available to study each day. These are just two of the many factors taken into consideration by this intelligent system to provide a complete and adaptive learning experience. #languages #edtech #education #languagelearning
