 Authoritative Content Aligned to Clear Learning Objectives developed by a team of respected subject matter experts and experienced Learning Engineers. Education Research Methods includes 14 modules covering key topics in the education research domain.

 Data-driven Course Design enables real-time, dynamic insights into student learning. As students work through Education Research Methods, student learning data are collected, analyzed and modeled to The Learning Dashboard.™ Faculty use The Learning Dashboard to quickly assess students’ learning and progress, and adapt instruction and intervention to maximize student success.

 Ample Auto-Graded Practice With Targeted Feedback enacts instruction online, much like a human tutor. “Learn By Doing” and “Did I Get This” activities foster skill development in the context of how the skill will be applied in educational research.

 Synthesis and Application Activities help students apply new knowledge to real world problems, and assess their own understanding of core concepts. Students cultivate the skills necessary to apply classroom knowledge to situations they will encounter as practicing educators or researchers.
