It uses a personalized adaptive algorithm that sets students on the most efficient path to content mastery. Students follow a continuously adapting learning path that is personalized by their own inputs: their performance, and their self- reported confidence level related to each probing question. The course content is presented in the form of self-directed learning content, probing questions, and Cognitive Assessment Activities (CAAs). After completing the eLearning component, students perform their skills with an AHA Instructor or a HeartCode compatible manikin that provides real-time audio and visual feedback. Students must successfully complete both the cognitive portion and the hands-on skills session to receive an AHA BLS Provider eCard, valid for two years.
