Far Eastern University (FEU) in Manila, Philippines, selected McGraw Hill’s ALEKS adaptive learning software for more than 3,000 students in math and business courses at FEU High School in Academic Year 2020-2021.

FEU chose ALEKS (Assessment and Learning in Knowledge Spaces) to make virtual learning more effective and engaging with courses delivered all online this school year due to COVID-19.

Students in General Mathematics and Fundamentals of Accounting, Business and Management 1 and 2 will use ALEKS, a digital platform that uses artificial intelligence to provide personalised learning pathways for learners.

“With the help of McGraw Hill, one of the largest learning resource publishers and most awarded instructional solutions today, we strive to make virtual learning engaging and more student-oriented,” said Michael Alba, president of FEU.

Built on the theory of “knowledge spaces” from cognitive science, ALEKS uses artificial intelligence to create personalised and dynamic learning paths for K-20 students based on their unique needs. To date, ALEKS has served more than 20 million students at thousands of K-12 schools, colleges and universities throughout the world.

“Facing the daunting challenge of providing quality learning experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic, (FEU) has shown its commitment to putting students first through innovative approaches to online learning and digital instruction,” said Joseph Chong, managing director of McGraw Hill Asia.

In addition to using ALEKS for math and business courses, FEU schools will also leverage McGraw Hill’s Connect and Redbird Math digital programs to increase student success. McGraw Hill’s support for FEU is the latest example of the learning science company’s many partnerships with leading institutions around the world who are undergoing digital transformations.
