Acrobatiq: Leveraging Education With Learning Analytics

CIO VendorEric Frank, CEO
Learning analytics has become a buzzword and it is one of the key developments in higher education. At its core, it is all about capturing, reporting, analyzing and acting on the right data to improve the student experience and outcomes.

Keeping up with the latest trends in learning technology, Acrobatiq, a subsidiary of Carnegie Mellon University, is offering customizable courseware, learning analytics capabilities and consulting services to educational institutions that are looking forward to improve learning outcomes for students. Founded in July 2013, the new company is a spinoff from CMU's successful Open Learning Initiative (OLI), a recognized leader and pioneer in online learning since 2001.
The foundation of Acrobatiq Intelligent Courseware is the course design triangle. Three elements− clear, measurable learning objectives, content and activities, and assessments− work closely together to support improved student outcomes.

The design triangle ensures that there is no wasted time or effort. From day one, faculty and students can keep track of what they will know, and be able to do, at the end of the course.

"We are thrilled to have the backing of CMU and the talent we need to bring the proven findings of OLI to market on a larger scale," says Eric Frank, CEO, Acrobatiq. Looking forward to contribute more to the education sector, “We will continue to focus on evidence-based course design and strong collaborations with university researchers– which we believe are fundamental to developing learner-centric products and services that are aligned with the needs of higher education,” he added.
