Knewton partners with Cengage on adaptive learning tech

Dive Brief:

  • Adaptive learning company Knewton and educational publisher Cengage Learning on Tuesday announced a partnership that will see Knewton's API incorporated in higher education Management and Sociology products on Cengage's MindTap platform.
  • The technology will analyze data as students complete assignments, recording what they've learned while figuring out what to recommend and providing professors with real-time analytics, allowing more personalized instruction for problem areas.
  • The new products are expected to launch in Fall 2015.

Dive Insight:

Cengage is the latest publisher to join the growing list of Knewton partners, which also includes universities and schools. Adaptive learning is a hot area in education right now, so it should come as no surprise that Cengage would seek to further improve its MindTap product with a personalized learning element.
