Cambridge University Press today announced a comprehensive partnership with leading adaptive learning company Knewton.
Cambridge University Press, one of the world’s foremost English Language Teaching (ELT) publishers, will use Knewton technology to create personalized learning experiences in its industry-leading ELT digital products for students worldwide.
The partnership will see Knewton and Cambridge University Press develop a new generation of digital ELT products by integrating the Knewton Application Programming Interface (API) with the innovative Cambridge Learning Management System platform, which currently serves over 250,000 students and teachers globally.
This will enable Cambridge to incorporate recommendations and analytics into both self-paced and instructor-led blended learning materials to help teachers monitor student performance in real-time.
Knewton-powered Cambridge University Press products will continuously gauge student proficiency and engagement. Teachers will be provided with insight into individual student or class needs, freeing them to do what they do best—teach and engage students.
“Providing innovative learning solutions that make a meaningful difference in each student and teacher’s life is our top priority,” said Michael Peluse, global Managing Director for English Language Teaching.
“Adding Knewton technology to our state-of-the-art digital products means they will become even more effective, providing teachers with the information and the tools to help them evaluate course content, identify student competencies, and deliver tailored lessons accordingly.”
“It’s an honor to join forces with Cambridge University Press to bring personalized learning to more students worldwide and improve student outcomes,” said Knewton Founder and CEO Jose Ferreira.
“Knewton adaptive learning technology will make it easier for teachers to tailor lessons to meet each student’s unique needs.”
