    Abstract:
    This discussion recounts a project between the Library, the Art History department, and the Office of Academic Innovation at Portland State University to investigate the potential benefits of adaptive learning platforms in asynchronous instruction. The investigators designed and created Information Literacy modules specifically tailored to the needs of Art History students utilizing two platforms. One delivery method was “active and adaptive” software, and the other was in a more static, yet interactive environment. During the Winter term of 2020, the results of pre and post information literacy assessments were compared between the cohorts as well as an analysis of students’ preliminary bibliographies in an attempt to determine whether the same content delivered in different online learning environments were appreciably different. This is a timely addition to the conversation about how best to deliver content to remote learners in our current educational environment.
