Adaptive Learning and Fast Track™ Exams for Military Students

CTU Chief Academic Officer and Provost Dr. Connie JohnsonThe incorporation of technology into academics has enabled institutions like Colorado Technical University to offer courses using adaptive learning technology. Intellipath™, CTU’s proprietary adaptive learning technology, personalizes course material completely around the student.

After service experience and training, military members may have gained knowledge otherwise taught in the classroom. Through the combination of Intellipath™ and CTU’s Fast Track™ exams, military students at CTU are able to test out of subjects they have already mastered, and receive course credit without having to repeat what they already know, thereby allowing them to receive their degree sooner.

Dr. Connie Johnson, Chief Academic Officer and Provost of Colorado Technical University spoke earlier this year on adaptive learning and CTU’s Fast Track™ at the Virginia Advisory Council Military Education conference in Virginia Beach. After her presentation on adaptive learning, other groups expressed interest in learning more. Dr. Johnson’s article on adaptive learning and Fast Track™ was featured in the June 2015 issue of Military Advanced Education and Transition (page 21), the May DANTES e-newsletter, and the September/October Marine Corps Newsletter.

The ability to reduce time in school and/or reduce tuition depends on the number of Fast Track™ courses successfully passed. Fast Track™ program credits are unlikely to transfer. Not all programs are eligible for possible 30% reduction in time and money.
