Adaptive Courseware Focused on Improving Student Outcomes
Acrobatiq empowers educators to improve student learning outcomes. Their data-driven adaptive learning platform and curriculum solutions enable fine-grained measurement, analysis and visualization of student learning performance. Data is used to support instructional innovation, personalized learning, and measurable improvements in student outcomes so more students can achieve their educational goals. Building on Carnegie Mellon University’s historic strengths in learning science and the Open Learning Initiative’s pioneering research in online learning, Acrobatiq’s data-driven adaptive platform, learning analytics and curriculum solutions provide real-time and detailed measurement, analysis and visualization of student learning performance. Data is used to support instructional innovation, more targeted and timely application of support services, and measurable improvements in student outcomes so more students can achieve their educational goals.
Acrobatiq is educators, learning engineers and scientists, software engineers, and entrepreneurs who share a passion for education and a laser-focus on improving outcomes.
By converging learning science, data, and technology, they believe they can enable educators and institutions to increase course completion rates and decrease costs per completer through evidence-based personalized learning solutions.
Acrobatiq is born out of Carnegie Mellon University’s long history of excellence in cognitive science, human-computer interaction, and software engineering. They feel privileged to build upon the success of CMU’s Open Learning Initiative (OLI), a pioneer in online learning, and the broader CMU community of researchers, educators, and scientists. OLI’s work in the science of learning and proven results have laid the foundation for our work.
At Acrobatiq, with the backing of Carnegie Mellon, they will continue to focus on evidence-based course design and strong collaborations with university researchers – which they believe are fundamental to developing learner-centric products and services that are aligned with the needs of higher education.
About the Open Learning Initiative
OLI is a grant-funded, non-profit project initially supported by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. Since 2001, OLI has created online courses based on the findings of learning science and student performance in real classrooms. OLI courseware has been field-tested at dozens of institutions by thousands of learners and is widely supported by academic leaders.
OLI frequently publishes its learning research findings in journals, conference proceedings, and other educational publications. To learn more, visit the Open Learning Initiative research site.
