The Virtual Learning Lab aims to eradicate the misconception that implementing an effective personalized learning platform is a “grand challenge,” as identified by the U.S. Department of Education, the National Science Foundation and the National Academy of Engineering.  

Although designing an effective “Intelligent Tutoring System” can be expensive, research has shown individualized instruction yields the best results.  Unlike current ITS, the VLL strives to create one that automatically guides students through course material based on large data sets acquired from prior successful users.   

In partnering with the University of Florida’s Lastinger Center, our team will evaluate the effects of integrating informatics on an established technology-based learning platform–Algebra Nation.
