Audio ear phones

Audio for each concept

Learning with multiple senses helps. All our slides have audios. Some audios just read out the content, while other audios provide an audio mnemonic. The audio mnemonic is designed to be familiar, and yet be absurd enough to be remembered. We have used sounds such as tiger roaring, rooster crowing, water dripping and many more.

High Quality Visuals

Visual memory is the most powerful form of memory. That is why we prefer visuals over text. We can identify a picture or advertisement form our childhood so easily, even after years! That is why we have included rich and relevant visuals in our content. These visuals make the flashcards interesting, and help to remember for a longer duration.

Mnemonics

Most of us remember mnemonics such as "VIBGYOR" and "BODMAS" even years after leaving school. We have created many such catchy mnemonics to remember long answers. We also have audios and visuals to go with the mnemonics. Students often forget 1-2 points from long answers. Mnemonics make sure that you remember the entire answer quickly.

Analogy

Analogies draw similarities between similar things to make it easier to understand and remember. Example : Passwords are usually depicted as being "Keys" to "Locks". In this analogy, encryption is the lock and password is the key. Similarly, electrical energy is often explained as water at a height. We have used analogies in our content to make concepts easier to remember and recall.

Chunking

Simply stated, one chunk is one piece of information. At a time, humans can accurately keep in memory upto 3 chunks. With this in mind, we have designed the content such that the facts are presented gradually. Presenting facts all at once overwhelms the memory. We have divided information in groups of 3 making it easy to memorise.

Using Absurdity

The brain is designed to pay more attention to absurd and uncommon things. Absurd things are remembered for longer. We have designed effective "absurd" pictures, audios and ideas so that students pay more attention, and the concept is remembered for longer.

Test

Taking tests is very important. It forces you to recall the answer, which is very essential to create long term memories of the concepts. Testing also tells you which answers you know and which you dont know. This will help you save time and focus only on revising what you dont know. We have one question for every flashcard. At the end of every chapter, it is recommended that you take the test.

Recall Technique

The flashcards are designed to be used in question-answer format. This way you will get the chance to recall the answer, and then compare it what you recalled with the original answer. Multiple choice questions are not recommended as they dont require you to recall the concept. We dont have any multiple choice questions on our website.

Spaced Repetition

It is important to space out revisions evenly. It is important to revise when the brain has just started to forget this information. This will ensure that you are able to memorise more things in less time.

Revising by Re-Reading

Revision by re-reading everything is very common among students. This is a very ineffective way of revising. Passive re-reading does not efficiently create the long term memories for a concept. For revision : Talking a test, or trying to recall an answer are much more effective.

Importance of Understanding

Understanding is very important and critical. Mastering a subject needs you to do both understanding and memorising. It is better to memorise after you understand a concept. However, understanding does not guarantee remembering. To memorise something, you need revision and practice.

Our website is a memory tool. We advise you to memorise only after understanding the concept from a teacher or senior.
