What does Chessity mean by ‘adaptive learning’?

Everyone who learns to play chess - be it children or adults - has their own strengths and weaknesses. What is an easy chess lesson or puzzle for one person can be a huge stumbling block for another.

For effective chess training, it is important that the difficulty level of the exercises matches as closely as possible the level of the chess player. It must be challenging enough, but not too difficult to make it demotivating. ‘Level’ is thus an individual given, which also changes as a player gets better. 

The kind of technology-enhanced learning that Chessity offers makes it possible to respond to the different learning and training needs of users. The chess level is adjusted for each user in such a way that everyone achieves an optimal learning efficiency.

Such an adaptive and therefore personal teaching method is not only good for those who learn to play chess, but also for teachers. Because of the flexible way that Chessity adapts to students’ individual needs, teaching groups of students with different chess levels is no effort at all.
