Project Objectives

The objective of this team is to explore whether UIC should pursue implementation of adaptive courseware as part of undergraduate instruction.  Recently the APLU and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, for its funding purposes, released an “approved courseware” vendor list which provides the scope of the products to be reviewed by this team.  This team will identify whether any of the recommended products could be appropriate for UIC, and if so, to gauge interest by the relevant majors/departments/instructors in considering the use of adaptive courseware as part of instruction/supporting students/achieving curricular goals.

The expected outcome of this evaluation project will consist of recommendations as to whether UIC should encourage the adoption of adaptive software; the nature of such software; the feasibility and interest for use in particular disciplines/courses; and  suggested process.
