The new course material options and integrated customization tools provide additional sources of accessible high-quality, low-cost resources for faculty
Continuing our mission to provide faculty and students with effective high-quality, low-cost course materials, we are proud to introduce OER+ to our platform. OER+ brings advanced customization and adaptive learning courseware to our growing list of adoption resources. Through a new integrated user experience with CogBooks, a leading provider of custom adaptive learning materials, our partner schools have access to a sophisticated courseware system that enhances OER content with highly interactive learning modules. Through intelligent algorithms, this courseware adapts to the unique needs of each student, enabling for more effective studying and classroom preparedness.
Akademos platform users now have access to CogBooks’ library of affordable adaptive learning courseware that augments high quality Open Educational Resources (OER) with additional instructional content, homework activities, simulations, videos and assessments to deliver a highly engaging, personalized experience for each learner. Instructors teaching online or in the classroom can be confident that students get the 1:1 support they need at the moment they need it, regardless of learning modality. No longer having to choose between personalized learning, low cost, and instructional freedom, faculty have the ability to customize content during adoption. Students gain day one access to a personalized path toward concept mastery and course success.
All OER+ materials are seamlessly integrated into the course materials platform. Faculty members can easily customize their search to enable OER/OER+ materials only. Additionally, the advanced data collected from the courseware flows directly into the analytics dashboard. This data provides faculty and administrators insight into how students are interacting with OER+ content. The reporting and analytics are used to enhance the classroom experience, whether on campus or online, and to identify specific challenges that students are facing. OER+ is next generation technology that helps colleges and universities boost student success and retention.
