Here's the press release.
Here's the patent.
It's about automatically sequencing a series of learning objects based on the activity of students. Someone does something, and the order of presentation of some items is shuffled in response.
This is not a patent on learning management systems. This is not a salvo in an ed tech war to end all ed tech wars. It's learning objects. Remember those? Yeah. Just barely. But now there's a patent for one aspect of automatically sequencing them.
