Individual learners’ learning goals, preferences, and prior knowledge play a significant role in determining the level of their engagement in learning. Emerging since the 1950s, adaptive learning addresses learners’ personal learning needs by capitalizing on learners’ characteristics and monitoring individuals’ learning processes in the delivery of content. This project applied adaptive learning to a module in PCTLHE to create bite-sized online adaptive learning units for participants’ asynchronous learning using H5P in Moodle. It compared the achievement of learning outcomes and engagement levels among the participants who went through the module through ZOOM or adaptive learning units. The designing process, lessons learnt, and results will be shared in the seminar.
