Acrobatiq Adds New Course Authoring and Analytics Capabilities

An upgrade to Acrobatiq's adaptive learning and analytics platform boasts enhancements to the Acrobatiq Smart Author digital publishing application as well as improvements to the Acrobatiq learning analytics engine.

Version 3.0 makes it faster and easier for universities to design, develop and deliver digital, active and adaptive learning experiences for students, according to a company statement. "Courseware produced in Smart Author dynamically adapts to the needs of each learner, and provides educators and student support teams with detailed and real-time information about which learners need help and where, enabling timely, targeted, and effective learning support."

Among the new features are:

  • The ability to produce predictive learning estimates for small classes;
  • Course Readiness Reports that automate the review of course organization and content elements;
  • Automatic insights into question difficulty, to better inform individual learning estimates;
  • Improvements to customized dashboard views;
  • New course publishing and maintenance tools for authoring, editing, updating and continually managing courses;
  • Enhanced administrative functions;
  • Inline help system to guide new users; and
  • Updated user interface.

"Acrobatiq makes it possible for our faculty and instructional design teams to develop great learning experiences around practices that we know lead to better student engagement and achievement," said Michael Medlock, VP of instructional design at Rio Salado College, in a statement. "The new publishing tools in 3.0, particularly the Course Readiness Report, accelerate our quality assurance process and allow us to quickly make changes to our courseware based on what our student data is telling us."
