a-MOOC or Adaptive MOOC is one of the latest Edtech terms, which is a combination of Adaptive Learning and MOOC.


Adaptive MOOC:

It is a combination of MOOCs – Massive Open Online Courses with an Adaptive Learning platform where the distribution is built on the individual learning preferences of the student and providing them continuous intelligent tutoring with auto-graded content, examination and assessment.

Think of this as an example if we take the best teaching and learning content with the best teacher and department and deliver that course in adaptive learning way where every student gets their own customisation of the content, so that they are presented with the challenging concepts in a simple way and also that they learn with different learning strategies.

According to Cognitive Psychology, everyone learns differently but what is being done through MOOCs is one-size-fits-all, which is one of the reasons for high rate of erosion for MOOCs. This is where the Adaptive MOOC becomes the perfect tool to use.


A well-written document all about one of the first a-MOOC.
