UNIST is pleased to announce the unveiling of the ALPS (Adaptive Learning Portfolio System), a customized academic information system designed to enhance the learning experience of our students.
Prior to the official opening of ALPS, the UNIST Education Performance Management Center organized a briefing session for ALPS services on November 10, 2023. The event brought together undergraduate students, graduate students, and staffs to engage in insightful discussions about their experiences with the pilot operation of APLS.
Developed by UNIST, APLS is a cutting-edge academic information system that empowers students with self-directed learning capabilities. The development of APLS began in August 2022 and, after a seven-month process, the first phase of the system was completed in March 2023. Subsequently, the system underwent pilot operations, and valuable feedback was gathered from prospective users. The official service of APLS will commence on November 13, 2023.
The primary audience for APLS is the students themselves. Through this innovative system, students can access their academic information history, including details of internships, research activities, and credit completion. APLS also enables students to design individual career simulations tailored to their specific goals. Furthermore, the system provides comprehensive analysis of students’ strengths and weaknesses based on their academic information history.
In addition, professors who guide students and employees responsible for academic management can efficiently provide personalized support using ALPS. This strategic approach aims to enhance students’ educational satisfaction and implement excellence in education.
Kyung A Son, the Director of the UNIST Education Performance Management Center, expressed her enthusiasm, stating, “We have established a customized learning portfolio system that supports self-directed learning in line with UNIST’s innovation in engineering education. Through cumulative data analysis facilitated by ALPS, we will be able to devise strategies to nurture science and engineering talents in the mid- to long-term.”
