One of SuperMemo Method’s mottos comes from Benedict Carey, who wrote in ‘How We Learn’: Throw out the rule book and unlock your brain’s potential (Macmillan 2015). SuperMemo Method is focused on the innovation of spaced repetition, one of the most important developments of the recent 30 years in education. The revolution started in 1980s by Piotr Wozniak and SuperMemo, the first company to implement advanced, individualized repetition scheduling algorithms in its computer programs. SuperMemo continues to be the unique source of research in long term memory and a leader in its commercial application through the SuperMemo.com online ecosystem.
A Model to Incorporate the Learning Sciences in MOOC Design and Beyond
How Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) creators incorporate the learning sciences into their work is unclear. Many institutions started creating MOOCs with little preparedness for the learning design challenges posed by online education. With increasing MOOC offerings, paid certificate tracks, and schools counting MOOCs for credit toward a degree, the quality of these online learning experiences matters more than ever before. To lower the barrier to incorporate the learning sciences in MOOCs and beyond, MIT is documenting their process in applying research on learning and creating practical guides and training for others to design digital learning experiences.
