Engage! Using Adaptive Courseware and Digital Technology to Enhance Student Learning

Many instructors are striving to make good use of digital technology to interact with students and help them master challenging course material. Adaptive courseware takes many forms, has improved over time, and allows students to skip “busywork” while putting the focus on practicing concepts that need extra work. New technologies can allow instructors to identify, follow and communicate directly with struggling students to get them the help they need. In the General Chemistry Program at Colorado State University, we’ve used a mix of adaptive learning platforms, static homework, in-class active learning activities, and digital monitoring to enhance student learning and engagement.
