Steer Clear of a Cookie Cutter Approach

The traditional practice in education is to force students to use the same key to try and open different, unique, locks - many will never succeed. This educational practice is being increasingly disrupted via personalized learning, which has historically been contained inside of the classroom. Education hasn't been the only industry to adopt this contemporary technique. Consider the Pandora Music app, the more that a person uses their app, listening to music, liking/disliking songs, etc., the more tailored each next song becomes. Examples like these beg the question, why not do the same for a college student's learning experience outside of the classroom?
