What follows is the second of now two Specials Issues of the CIEE journal to have been produced and guest edited by the Personalized Learning Consortium (PLC) of the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU). Both special issues feature important research resulting from university initiatives to launch, implement and scale up the use of adaptive courseware and the strategies of adaptive learning. The Personalized Learning Consortium has been working with institutions for more than five years to improve student success in high enrollment undergraduate courses. Using a combination of active learning and adaptive courseware, many universities are reporting higher passing rates but also more equitable outcomes. In this issue, we share five papers that discuss how and why higher education institutions have incorporated adaptive courseware and learning into high enrollment general education courses. The papers also provide detailed examples of levels of success achieved.
