Adaptive Study CenterAn Adaptive Exam Preparation Tool for Higher Education
Adaptive Study Center – a personalized learning app
When a leading Educational Technology company needed a new, highly customized, web application to deliver their strategic vision of ‘Adaptive Learning’ in their select higher education products, they chose GRS to architect, develop and deliver the cutting-edge solution.
Working closely with the Client’s product and technical teams, we rapidly architected a modular solution that leveraged their existing content systems, modernized their content delivery services, and without locking them to a specific tech-stack, future-proofing their investment. The solution uses an external analytics service (Knewton.com) to achieve personalized learning for each student.
Java with bootstrap was used for the backend services, Front-end interfaces leveraged AngularJS, and the web application was served by a no-SQL Cassandra database. With a rapid, 9 month turn around, we were able to deliver a responsive, highly scalable solution, ready in time for their product release.
The Adaptive Study Center application runs in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud environment on multiple load balanced (ELB) EC2 instances, with an ability to scale in response to increase in load as new ‘Adaptive Learning’ courses are created and used across 100s of higher education schools.
