Adaptive learning is the new frontier of digital curriculum and Macmillan has been at the forefront for almost a decade with the LearningCurve adaptive quizzing program. Over 2 million students have used LearningCurve since its inception, and now we have improved it to make it better and more useful to you and your students.

 

Want to learn more? We are holding a 25-minute webinar on Friday, September 16 at 1 p.m. EDT that introduces recent changes to LearningCurve and features Mark Laumakis of San Diego State University.

 

Sign up here to attend the webinar.


Mark's "blended learning" approach, which combines traditional and media-powered approaches, earned him an SDSU Top 25 Award, given to those who have made transformational contributions to the university's mission. In addition, he has won the SDSU Division of Student Affairs Residential Education Favorite Faculty Award for an unprecedented four straight years (2005-2009). As part of a Merlot ELIXR case study, Mark sums up his experiences: "My story is really one about how you can leverage the tools of technology, how you can design your course in a way to help students learn and at the same time make your life manageable."

 

Mark is going to show comparative data from his use of LearningCurve in his large lecture sections at SDSU. He and the Macmillan team will also be available for a Q and A at the session’s end.
