Is there evidence that Area9 Rhapsode™’s adaptive learning works?

Research Paper

Adaptive Learning in Healthcare

Adaptive learning is increasingly used in health care education as a way to improve competence, reduce knowledge gaps, expose and address unconscious incompetence, and enable safer and more effective care provision and delivery.

Overall, more than 2 million users in 2022 alone used Area9 Rhapsode as their basis for healthcare education – including physicians, nurses, laboratory technicians, and others, and at all levels from students to experienced practitioners. Included in this group are learners who experienced adaptive learning as part of long-term partnerships Area9 established across the health care spectrum. As our white paper will show, there is evidence of the efficiencies and effectiveness to be gained from a personalized approach that meets learners where they are, establishes what they’ve learned already and what they need to master, and engages learners as they build competence.

“I have known Ulrik and Area9 for almost 10 years and I consider them to be excellent and very practically oriented entrepreneurs within learning. I suppose they have had a whole decade’s head start in their understanding of education technology, but unlike many other visionaries, they have developed systems that simply work.”
