    Just-in-Time Learning

    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.
