Knewton, Elsevier partner on adaptive learning for students in healthcare fields
- Elsevier and adaptive learning company Knewton are partnering to develop personalized learning solutions for nursing, health professions, and medical students.
- Elsevier — which offers scientific, technical, and medical information products and services — develops around a quarter of the world's clinical content, and its partnership with Knewton will allow it to offer learning solutions that make personalized recommendations to students based on what they already know.
- The first products to come out of the collaboration will be courses for nursing and health professions students.
This partnership is indicative not just of the continued demand for personalized learning solutions, but of Knewton's still-expanding influence in that space worldwide. Other partners include most major education publishers, like Pearson and Cengage; foreign publishers like Cambridge University Press, Sanoma Learning, and Sebit; and even Microsoft.
