intellADAPT Initiates National Pilot with Six HBCUs at UDC

On Thursday, October 6, 2016, intellADAPT, a Boston based educational technology and Adaptive Learning Startup, held two events at The University of the District of Columbia, in Washington, DC. This was the first phase of the National Science Foundation funded pilot project which will provide opportunities for six participating Historically Black Colleges and Universities to explore and implement intellADAPT’s patented Adaptive 2.0 technology. This phase of the pilot will be ongoing over the next nine months.

The events held October 6th included a one-hour Open Discussion about intellADAPT’s Adaptive 2.0 education technology. This session was led by Dr. Nish Sonwalkar, (ScD. MIT), intellADAPT’s CEO and Founder and members of intellADAPT’s staff. The second even of the day was a Workshop for representatives from the six participating HBCUs will be held and conducted by intellADAPT staff.

The six HBCUs participating were Alabama A&M University, Alabama State University, Central State University (OH), Tougaloo College, The University of the District of Columbia, and the University of Maryland Eastern Shores. IntellADAPT looks forward to initiating collaborative efforts with these institutions to implement the pilot program in the near future.

The intellADAPT team would like to give a special thank you to Dr. Carl Moore and his staff at The University of the District of Columbia for serving as host for this important event.

Participate in the National Field Trials for Adaptive Physics Education

National Science Foundation funded research project on “big data analytics driven adaptive learning for STEM education” is inviting participation of school systems for field trials.

Under this project, 10 selected high schools will be offered use of the innovative adaptive learning platform for improving learning outcome for STEM students at no cost.

In previous field trials,

  • Students have reported that receiving real-time assessment feedback and further instruction in their preferred learning style significantly improved their comprehension.
  • Students progressed through the activities at their own pace without fear of peer judgement on their performance.
  • Instructors received learner analytics, both for each individual student and for entire classes, that assisted with tweaking their lectures to improve learning outcome.

Using intellADAPT will take no more faculty time than the usual class preparation. Faculty participation will include attendance at a 1-hour online webinar in September to train on the intellADAPT technology and attendance at 1-2 optional conference calls of all instructors in this study to discuss experiences and trade ideas. No travel, no lengthy surveys, only sharing thoughts and experiences with other instructors.

Adaptive 2.0 to Help Millions of STEM Students

VISIT THE COURSE HOMEPAGE

With the assistance of a National Science Foundation (NSF) SBIR grant, IntellADAPT.com (formerly Synaptic Global Learning ) has developed a groundbreaking adaptive massive open online course (aMOOC) aimed at “Mastering Fundamentals of Physics.” This course will provide 100,000 to 150,000 students a year the preparation they need to sit the Advanced Placement (AP) exams in Physics completely free. This is the first of 20 aMOOCs under development in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.
