Knowillage Announces Availability of Knowillage LeaP™ - Bringing New Possibilities of Personalized and Adaptive Learning to the LMS Integrated Course Tool Dramatically Improves Teaching and Learning Experience
RICHMOND, British Columbia, Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Knowillage Systems Inc. today announced the availability of the Knowillage LEArning Path (LeaP), an integrated course tool that gives Canvas LMS users the power of personalization and adaptive learning. LeaP provides students with personalized learning paths – using existing course content, as well as open educational resources – and facilitates the rapid definition of custom courses, all in a way that's intuitive and easy-to-use by teachers and students alike.
Knowillage LeaP is easy to enable inside courses, thanks to the Canvas External Tools extensions, and connects instantly to the existing course content and outcomes. Knowillage's revolutionary semantic engine greatly simplifies the process of mapping learning materials to objectives by eliminating the need to manually modify or tag existing content. Instructors are able to configure how they want to use LeaP, whether as a complete course remediation tool, or to deliver personalized learning paths for each course lesson. Instructors can also decide whether to start these paths with a pre-test, which enables LeaP to guide the student down a path that is optimized for them. Students can take a post-test at any time to assess their understanding of the topic and, through the seamless integration with Canvas, have those scores appear in their gradebook.
Knowillage LeaP also facilitates the rapid creation of new courses – instead of building modules and manually selecting content, only learning outcomes need to be provided, and new courses can be created in minutes rather than hours. This is accomplished using Knowillage's revolutionary recommendation engine, which delivers the most effective learning paths through the course's learning materials. For both existing and new courses, open content and questions can be included to supplement current materials, and Knowillage's activity and feedback engines use objective results to quickly identify the most effective materials and adapt to improve the student paths.
"We've seen how powerful it can be when technology is used to transform the way students learn, and to enable educators to spend more time guiding students," said Bill Bilic, founder of Knowillage Systems Inc. "Knowillage LeaP brings this transformation to a whole new level, as it easily connects to existing platforms, uses existing content without the need to modify it, and delivers adaptive learning paths custom made for each student."
