What is Edapt? - Definition from WhatIs.com
Part of the Software applications glossary:

Edapt is the trade name for an e-learning (electronic learning) program developed by Tcert of Atlanta, Georgia. The software employs artificial intelligence ( AI ) to streamline the learning process for a student, and to make the program a better teacher as a student spends time with it.

Features of Edapt include an interface that keeps the student interested and helps the student follow specialized, nonlinear learning paths. The level of difficulty is constantly adjusted based on student performance, optimizing the amount of material learned per unit time. Students are given frequent opportunities to evaluate their progress. Animation, speech recognition, and interactivity enhance the flexibility of the program and keep users attentive. The learning environment has been described as structured yet not restrictive.

In a class setting, Edapt keeps track of the progress and needs of each individual student, and also of the group as a whole. Thus, the program can optimize curricula for small and large groups, as well as for individual students. Edapt is available for use in most natural languages, and most operating platforms. It can be used with individual computers, in a local area network (LAN), or on the Internet.
