Adaptive eLearning platform empowers Prof. Ariel Anbar to teach science in classes of up to 400 students in a rich, interactive and adaptive way
Washington DC, October 10, 2014 – The spread of adaptive learning technology in higher education, to some, is the rise of the machines — replacing professors with software and an automated, cheapened form of instruction. To Ariel Anbar it’s a tool that helps him teach in new ways. Anbar is a professor in Arizona State University’s department of chemistry and biochemistry. Four years ago he began a collaboration with Smart Sparrow, an education-technology company based in Australia and San Francisco.
