SpanishMOOC utilizes Instreamia's patent-pending adaptive learning technology to help you learn more effectively. While learning from authentic videos, Instreamia will periodically probe your comprehension with simple knowledge checks, such as a fill-in-the-blank listening problem. The accuracy of your response in combination with other information in your learning profile helps Instreamia gauge your overall level, the types of problems you need to work on most, and which vocabulary you need more practice with. By iteratively adjusting questions to your level, Instreamia intelligently adapts to meet your needs and help you learn faster and more effectively.
