The next generation of the Adaptive Learning Management System (ALMS), that supports classroom and online instruction with incredible success by increasing student online course completion rates, is being adopted by national and international K-12 and university practitioners.

Synaptic Global Learning (SGL), a United States Distance Learning Association (USDLA) 21st Century Sponsor, has patented this learning platform. ALMS Cloud – 4DL HITE Technology dramatically increases student course completion and satisfaction rates. Student achievement is ensured because the course curriculum is presented in five different learning style formats. The patented system identifies the learners’ preferred learning style and delivers the curriculum content using varying learning strategies with continuous intelligent feedback, detailed statistical reports on individual learning performance, and real-time intervention. ALMS Cloud – 4DL HITE Technology supports the needs of 21st century learners.

 The ALMS – 4DL HITE Technology supports:

No Upfront Costs for the Technology Infrastructure and Affordable Costs and Minimal per Student Course Fees

SGL’s ALMS – 4DL HITE Technology is available to faculty and students anywhere, anytime as a hosted web-service. Any institution can create, deploy and host its courses, effective immediately, with affordable costs. Once a course is developed by an institution’s faculty, students are enrolled and charged a small technology fee (per student, per course). Institutions pay as they earn fees from learners. There are no long-term server contracts, no need for IT staff, no infrastructure costs, and no experts required for content development.

SGL’s professional staff of instructional designers, content developers, and domain experts is available to develop and launch degree and certificate programs as a professional service. SGL staff will guide faculty and students and ensure that in-class courses and online programs are fully supported (24×7) by SGL’s veteran team.
