In 2015, Austin Community College - Highland Campus unveiled a new, state of the art student-centric, open space learning environment, called the ACCelerator, that utilizes technology to help teach and support students. The ACCelerator space offers 600+ computer stations, 15 group study rooms, and numerous classes involving tutoring, academic support, career advising, IT support, and community engagement.

Partnering with Austin Community College, McGraw-Hill Higher Education’s adaptive program, ALEKS, has been utilized in the ACCelerator to provide a personalized learning experience to ACC students. Using adaptive software capabilities, ALEKS identifies students’ individual strengths and weaknesses and then focuses their time on the areas each individual student needs help on the most.

Hear from Austin CC Professor Anne Praderas Vance to learn more about the ACCelerator and ALEKs partnership:
