Instructure Partners with Cerego to Bring Adaptive, Personalized Learning Tools
Instructure today revealed a new partnership with Cerego, bringing the latter’s advanced personalized learning platform to the Canvas learning management system (LMS).
Cerego is now available for integration in Canvas, according to a news release, enabling users to take advantage of the company’s course-complete adaptive courseware (which faculty can customize if needed), along with analytics dashboards for instructors and students.
Cerego technology uses a proprietary and evidence-supported algorithm to assess individual memory strength based on a learner’s performance, the forgetting curve and distributed practice formulas. Using these factors, the platform develops an error-correcting model and delivers an optimal schedule for the learner.
Instructure, which has worked with more than 2,000 educational institutions and companies around the globe, decided to partner with Cerego for its advanced tools. “Joining forces with Cerego will provide instructors with a more holistic solution for LMS implementations, giving students more choice in accessing educational materials online,” Melissa Loble, vice president of platform and partnerships at Instructure, said in the news release.
The integration has already been piloted at Santa Rosa Junior College and Long Beach City College in California.
