The following is the description of the webinar:

Teaching the same lesson at the same time to all students, regardless of their learning needs, has been the norm for over 100 years. Adaptive instructional systems are facilitating a transformation to a mass-personalization model to meet the unique needs of each student. This model is designed to teach the right lesson to the right student at the right time to enable their success.
