SmartBook 2.0 – Personalized and Adaptive Learning

For nearly two years I’ve been working on the next generation of adaptive learning at McGraw-Hill Education.  What does that mean? It means reading and assessment that is different for each learner as they show their understanding of the Learning Objectives for each assignment. What I am most excited about is that this is the first native mobile fully accessible app for our learner – inclusivity is what it is all about.

SmartBook 2.0 tracks student progress and provides reports that allow instructors to identify exactly where and when students are struggling. It helps instructors easily identify students who may be at risk of failing and spend time helping them with the concepts and topics they need to learn to succeed.

“SmartBook is a powerful tool for the hundreds of students I teach every semester – helping pinpoint knowledge gaps and focus their learning on concepts requiring additional study,” said William Hoover, professor at Bunker Hill Community College. “My students are grasping core concepts and coming to class better prepared for advanced instruction. I can’t wait to introduce SmartBook 2.0 into my courses. The more advanced algorithms behind the technology, the mobile and offline reading and assignment completion capabilities and the new reports for instructors will make this incredible tool even more useful and effective.”
