Dale John, manager of the Adaptive General Education Program for EdPlus at ASU, shared a few of the things ASU is doing to create better courses with more meaningful learning outcomes.
Johnson, who studied at ASU and Harvard, currently works with faculty and staff to advance and expand the use of adaptive courseware in introductory classes at ASU. The ultimate goal is to improve student success by implementing adaptive learning.

Johnson said that ASU is moving away from huge rooms with passive students, and moving towards classrooms that are smaller and have more team activities. Johnson said that ASU has been following this process to actively improve courses:
As ASU continues to implement adaptive learning through this process, teachers will gain more assistance and students will be better prepared to succeed.
