Altius Education has just released its new online learning platform called Helix. Helix is a flexible and adaptive learning environment, which combines the powers of storytelling with the latest developments in big data, cognitive science, and current technologies.
Users of the Helix learning environment are asked to choose a story that fits their personal interests. The system uses this story to create a framework for the courses they take, making it clear to the learners why each course they take is relevant to their experience. This helps learners retain what they’ve learned and apply it appropriately to their overall experience.
