As the school season arrives, an increasing number of students will be studying through Internet-based systems. An NYC-based company called Knewton, for example, uses an adaptive learning technique that tracks learners' progress and shadows their online activities as they work. The technology personalizes online learning content for individual students. It can determine which topics a student excels at, and can even establish the best time of day for a specific student to study a given subject.
