The pandemic and the meteoric evolution of technologies catapulted the transition between face-to-face learning to distance learning which two different agents orbit: a) teachers, many of whom have insufficient bases to venture into digital with full confidence, and b) students labeled as generation Z and Alpha, a digital generation, connected, self-sufficient and with a great capacity for creation and adaptation. At the same time, a generation that also needs to receive constant stimuli and be challenged, involved, and guided in personalised and immersive environments where peer cooperation and teacher monitoring are crucial. In this context, the choice of the most appropriate pedagogical practices and tools for this generational involvement is greater than the challenge of transitioning from face-to-face to distance learning. In this realm new trends appeared focusing on adaptive learning to cater all these heterogeneous learning profiles and, at the same time, on micro-learning widely used by these generations for informal learning in order to gain knowledge in micro-content and multitasking environments. This book is about innovation in higher education after the Covid pandemic fostering novel approaches to engage disparate students (with different motivations, styles and paces) to learn in a consistent, interoperable and amusing journey, by using micro and adaptative learning approaches.


The proposed book aims to share novel trends and tools based on micro and adaptative learning to foster the teaching-learning process.

Target Audience

The proposed book could be used as a valuable resource for professors of any domain, practitioners, a reference for research scholars and students pursuing any kind of subjects.
