Adaptive Learning

Ultimate Personalization Maximum Business Impact

No two brains are alike. Area9’s adaptive platform combines cognitive neuroscience and computer science with your content to cut training time in half, guarantee proficiency and make lasting impacts on careers and business outcomes.

Personalize Your Training at the Point of Delivery

Are you a leader, or part of the herd? Chasing after buzzwords like gamification might sound like a good training strategy, but what you really need is a cutting-edge yet proven approach to proficiency building. Something with evidence collected from millions of learner experiences. Something that cuts training time in half while guaranteeing proficiency.

Area9’s industry-leading “biological” adaptive engine might sound like a buzzword, but it’s a proven solution tailored to target specific needs of corporate employees. Our technology personalizes each learner interaction based on their unique knowledge, experience, and confidence in the subject.

Each student gets a unique learning experience personalized to their needs, with fully adaptive content that use neuroscience and computer science to deliver the right content at the right time.

More than 20 Years of Research

For more than 20 years, the team behind Area9 Learning has been researching human factors, learning, product development, content development and computer science.

That research has led us to adaptive learning—what we believe to be the solution to e-learning fatigue—and the best solution to deliver personalized learning at scale.

How It Works

Customer Success

The New England Journal Of Medicine is the most widely read, cited, and influential general medical periodical in the world. NEJM Group and Area9 Learning partnered in February 2013 to create the first-of-its-kind platform with smart technology that adapts to clinicians’ learning goals, pace and knowledge gaps to deliver the information they need to know. The system uses research-proven methods to accelerate proficiency, continuously sharpen skills and promote true life long learning.

Area9 Lyceum Recognized in New Adaptive Learning Survey Study from Researchers at Leading Health Organizations

Researchers and physicians at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and NEJM Group conducted a survey study to determine user experiences with an adaptive learning platform and the impact on first-time American Board of Internal Medicine Certifying Examination (ABIM-CE) test takers.  The study was published in AMEE MedEd Publish, an open access online journal for medical and health-care professionals.

The survey study examines the NEJM Knowledge+ adaptive learning platform, which we co-developed with NEJM Group, and found that the majority of respondents rated the platform as helpful and the content as good or excellent for exam preparation and relevant to their learning needs. The study also found that a significantly higher proportion of users reported passing the ABIM-CE on their first attempt compared to the national average (95 percent vs. 89 percent).

The Danger of Unconscious Incompetence in Healthcare

Unconscious incompetence is when you don’t know that you don’t know. You think you are doing one aspect of your job correctly when you actually aren’t. Our data shows that employees can be 15-40% unconsciously incompetent in critical aspects of their job. It’s a problem that hits every industry and affects efficiency and productivity everywhere. But in certain sectors, unconscious incompetence can be even more harmful — healthcare is one of these.
