Acellus is a computer-based learning system that has changed online education as we know it today. Acellus is the only online learning system that utilizes I2 (Intelligent Interaction), which technology enables it to cater the educational content to the individual skill set of each student through customized, personal instruction. The end result is students that were struggling, and at risk of dropping out, soon are able to fill in the gaps needed for success, and over a short period of time gain back the confidence needed to succeed in school, the workforce, and life.
Acellus courses are taught via tiered video instruction – each course is broken up into individual concepts, and each concept has multiple videos available. Acellus is able to customize the course to the individual pace and level of each student. As the student progresses through the course, every response is recorded and monitored, and through I2 technology, personalized help videos are delivered right when the student needs assistance in a concept.
Acellus courses are taught by some of America's greatest teachers. These instructors have expertise in conveying knowledge, and even "hard to grasp" concepts, through video instruction. Through the combination of excellent instruction and immediate feedback, students are quickly able to start experiencing success within their coursework.
In Acellus, we create special problems for the purpose of identifying where a student has a hole in their background knowledge that's making it hard for them to learn a particular concept. This special kind of a problem in Acellus we call a "Swiss Cheese Problem," because it helps us find holes in a student's understanding.
Acellus has launched a new initiative to create courses that are "five star" in the way that they help students grasp and master concepts. The lessons are filmed in a diversity of locations with only the best and most qualified instructors, keeping them fun and exciting so that both students and onsite teachers will rate the courses as 5 stars.
Students are able to access Acellus courses through the intuitive student interface. After logging in, they are able to select from their list of classes. Acellus takes them right to their current position in the course they have been enrolled in, and automatically marks their attendance for the class.
Students can see the progress they are making in each class, and their score for each class. The Acellus messaging tool allows students to easily interact with their parent. Students are able to access Acellus via the web, allowing them to work wherever they have Internet access.
Special help videos are integrated into the course content for concepts students have difficulty with. These videos not only help the student master the content, but provide the student with "real world" scenarios, creating a meaningful context for obscure concepts.SAMPLE HELP VIDEO: Understanding Probability
