15 Tools for Self Paced Learning

"Self-paced instruction or learning is any kind of instruction that proceeds based on learner response. The content itself can be curriculum, corporate training, technical tutorials, or any other subject that does not require the immediate response of an instructor.  Self-paced instruction is constructed in such a way that the learner proceeds from one topic or segment to the next at their own speed.  This type of instruction is becoming increasingly popular as the education world shifts from the classroom to the internet (Wikipedia)."

Self-paced learning is an excellent way for students or educators to learn material at their own pace.  Also, this is ideal to help users retain information in a low pressure place as well as supplement different learning styles.  Finally, Self-paced learning is becoming more and more prevalent in schools w/ the integration of BYOD (bring your own device) or mobile learning.
