Acrobatiq

  • VitalSource

A learning-science based, course creation and delivery platform combining courseware authoring and content adaptivity.

Acrobatiq is founded on 12 years of research at Carnegie Mellon's Open Learning Initiative, which proved strong correlations between learning activities and learning gains. This Learn-by-doing approach is essential for improving student success. Acrobatiq provides ample, embedded practice opportunities for students to actively learn. As students practice, Acrobatiq models learning data to granularly predict how students will perform on summative assessments. This advanced understanding adapts and personalizes the platform to each learner's unique needs as well as provides instructors with a rich understanding of how students are learning and where they are struggling.

Acrobatiq's AI ability can make personalized and individualized learning possible for more students and classes. Its learning by doing philosophy is supported by learning science, and dashboards allow faculty to support students and adapt courses in real-time to learner needs.


Acrobatiq offers individualized learning that adapts to the student and could work with a variety of textbooks and faculty-developed materials. This tool aims to develop independent learners that reflect on their learning as they progress through a class. Learners have a clear explanation at the beginning of the course about the best way to interact with the course and are supported by learning science-based best practices. Faculty can identify both students who are progressing and need support as well as areas of the class that need improvements. Researchers can access data to assess student learning. 

More research is needed on impact and efficacy with populations of racially-diverse students and poverty-affected populations.
