Personalized Learning

Students learn best when education is targeted to their needs and goals and when they can receive real-time feedback. A growing body of evidence is demonstrating that technologies, when used effectively by faculty and student advisors, can personalize learning at unprecedented scale potentially enabling all students – not just those who are able to attend the most elite, expensive colleges – to get the best and most effective education at a reasonable price.

Our goal is to accelerate the development of these technologies and our understanding of how they can be used by faculty and advisors to help students achieve greater success in their postsecondary education. This means a learning experience that provides education tailored to students’ needs and goals, while ensuring that they have timely feedback in the learning moment, robust student supports, higher quality advising to ensure greater retention, and higher rates of program completion.
