As you may know, Brainscape is a web & mobile education platform that helps people learn faster, based on proven cognitive science. Our adaptive flashcards system provides many cognitive benefits beyond traditional paper flashcards, helping students retain information for longer than ever before.
These single-user benefits are much further amplified when Brainscape is used in a more organized setting, such as a school or company.
Benefits of Using Brainscape with a Class:
- Ease of Use -- Unlike some of the feature-bloated learning software out there, Brainscape's focus on flashcards makes onboarding new students or employees extremely simple. Users can typically figure out how Brainscape works within seconds, and if they can't, there are easy on-screen tooltips and user guides to help walk them through the process
- Real-time content updates -- In contrast to paper flashcards or traditional eLearning, any edits you make to shared Brainscape flashcards are instantaneously visible by all learners, on any device they may be using
- Collaboration -- You can easily invite other colleagues or students to help you edit the digital flashcards together. This is collectively much faster than having each student creating their own paper flashcards, and faster than having multiple instructors emailing a PPT file back & forth for editing
- Performance Monitoring -- Brainscape's educator dashboard allows learning admins to track students' study progress. Knowing how people are using Brainscape is an important component of several creative lesson plans that can be used with our software
For these reasons, we've had thousands of classes use Brainscape successfully over the years, and we hope to have millions more! Please feel free to share your experiences with us.
