New Player in Adaptive Learning

Peter Stokes is executive director of postsecondary innovation in the College of Professional Studies at Northeastern University. He has written about adaptive learning, and thinks it has the potential to be used across much of higher education.

However, Stokes said the technology is particularly valuable for colleges that are concerned about boosting their student success rates, at least at this stage in the game.

“A lot of the action is happening at for-profits,” says Stokes, “and also at community colleges.”
