LEARN BY TYPING IN YOUR ANSWERS

Typing mode is available for all courses, and will ask your questions in either audio or text (depending on your preference) and ask you to type the answer.

Our system will gauge your accuracy and determine if you are correct or not, and how accurate you are.

MORE THAN JUST TYPING



Creating a course with Memory automatically enables you to study your material with over 7 learning modes

Flashcards


Flashcards are a good way to learn fast. Test and improve your knowledge by reading the front of the card, deciding what the answer is in your head (or say it aloud as some users do) and flip the card and tell us if you were correct or not. The more often you get them correct, the less you will need to see them.

Smart


Smart mode is a combination of all modes which are intelligently rotated based on your learning ability. If you are not sure where to start, try smart mode. Smart mode initially starts off with easy modes such as typing and will advance to more difficult modes such as typing and speaking as you learn questions.

Practice


Practice mode is used to revise the questions you have already learned. Every time you answer a question, our system marks a date for reviewal depending on your performance. When questions are due for practice, your dashboard will show you all due questions.

Manual


Select precisely how you wish to learn: Choose your question type, answer type, languages and which way around you wish to answer the question. Manual learning mode gives you full control over your practice experience.

Weighted Custom


Weighted custom mode allows you to choose any balance of modes. Drag the sliders to set the frequency that you wish to see each mode. Custom mode lets you learn exactly how you want. To get started, select custom mode, choose User Settings, click advanced, and adjust the sliders for question times.

Multiple


Multiple choice is a good way to learn and practice fast. The answers are intelligently generated based on the topics of your course and its content. Simply select the correct answer to learn and test your memory.

Test / Exam


Test / exam mode enables you to test your progress. Questions will be asked, but you will not find out if you got them correct or not until the end, at which point you will get a summary card showing your progress. Repeat tests regularly to see your performance improve with time.

Listening


Listening mode is great for practicing your listening ability and speed to translate answers. Listen to the audio and select or type the correct answer. For language courses only.

Speaking


Speaking mode is to help your pronunciation and memory recall. With dictate, you should say what you read and hear. With translate you must read the phrase in your own language, then say the answer aloud in the opposite language.

Speaking & Listening


This mode is a combination of speaking and listening, and will allow you to practice both in rotation.

Gaps


Gaps mode automatically extracts keywords such as nouns, verbs and adjectives from your questions. You are then asked to fill in the gaps in the sentences from an appropriate word bank. This tests and improves your vocabulary retention.
