Students At Four Schools to Begin Using Knewton Technology

Educational technology company Knewton is expanding its reach in higher education. Four universities will now start using its technology to help prepare incoming students for college-level coursework. Schools offering Information Technology degrees can also be found in these popular choices.

Learning Tailored to Student Needs

Knewton's Adaptive Learning Platform includes a college readiness program with interactive video instructions that students can access on-demand. As students complete work through the program's lessons and quizzes, recommendations specific to their achievements and needs are made. Students are also given instant feedback so they know exactly where they stand with their preparations.

Creating a prep program that meets the exact needs of students has a far better chance of preparing them for college classes than a more generic program trying to meet the needs of a whole group of students. If 25 students are in a prep class it makes it difficult for teachers to address all of their needs. Instead, teachers might be forced to get through as much material as possible and hope students are getting it because they just don't have the time to give much individualized attention.

If students aren't successful with their readiness courses, they will surely have a hard time as they move on to their regular classes. Preparing with a program that understands the students' individual needs is more likely to give them the foundation they need to do well in their classes. They can complete the program feeling confident that they fully understand all of the material and are ready for the next level of courses.

Increased Popularity

Arizona State University was the first to use Knewton for its college readiness math courses. Due to the success of the partnership with Knewton, ASU plans on using its program for additional courses. The program is already catching on with other schools and it was recently announced that Penn State University, the State University of New York, Mount St. Mary's University and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas will also start to use Knewton's college readiness math course for their students.

Knewton CEO Jose Ferreira said, 'The rapid adoption of our Math College Readiness Course, built on our Adaptive Learning Platform, shows that we are able to deliver to universities a fast and highly efficient way to get students up to speed and ensure they are put in position to succeed in school and beyond.' It is highly likely that more schools will also adopt Knewton's technology in the future to help their students become fully ready for college.
