American Public University System (APUS) is one of the largest providers of online higher education worldwide since being founded in 1991. Under the direction of Dr. Karen Srba, VP Academic & Instructional Technology, the school has taken a student-first technology approach to how they retain their students and make them successful in their education journey. Srba and her team have adopted a rigorous adaptive technology platform featuring machine learning to create a student-centered experience.
The platform allows APUS to scaffold the student and their learning. This means that the learning is very personalized, using the evaluation of a student’s performance to assess their strengths and weaknesses. The platform offers students just-in-time learning by triggering them to learn or recall a skill or piece of knowledge to complete the lesson.
