We’ve all seen how data and adaptive technology can be used to continually improve our ad experience, search results, or movie selections—isn’t it time we use these same concepts to improve education as well? In the Helix environment, data is used to help instructors and the institution optimize the learning experience and adapt courses to fit students' learning styles and motivations. But that same data is also shared with students so that they're empowered to make decisions about how to manage their time, prioritize work, and create a plan for their education.
The instruction and coursework within Helix allows students to personalize their learning experience based on their aptitude. Students have the option to test their current knowledge of a topic, then the system adapts the learning path to the student’s distinct needs.
Individually-paced and self-motivated
Students can customize the pace of their education to their life situation and learning needs. While they progress through the program, constant feedback about their rate of learning empowers students to make informed decisions about how to schedule their time.
Helix adapts to a student’s goals for completion pace, degree and major. The level of competency required in each topic is tailored to the needs of the student’s degree and major, ensuring that each student will be precisely prepared for the path they choose to pursue, and can achieve their goals as quickly as possible.
