Our Story

In 2000, the Illinois Community College Board and the Center for the Application of Information Technologies at Western Illinois University partnered to plan, develop and deploy i-Pathways, a statewide online curriculum designed to provide adult education programs with the tools needed to integrate a distance learning option for adult education students as they prepared for their GED® tests. Since then, i-Pathways has grown from an Illinois statewide curriculum to a responsively designed and mobile ready curriculum that delivers both online and offline learning options for individuals, adult education programs, non-profit organizations, companies, correctional facilities, county jails, libraries, and statewide deployments across multiple continents.

In order to develop the highest quality curricula and system, the i-Pathways Team worked with an advisory committee of over 40 members from the adult education field to ensure the system was instructionally appropriate, user friendly and intuitive. Master instructors from the adult education field developed educationally sound and creative ideas that were translated into a technology based learning environment. These innovative ideas were turned into research-based curricula with instant feedback exercises, practice questions, and comprehensive learning checks by the instructional, design, and technical staff at CAIT.
