Spaced repetition learning – How it’s enabled by mobile-based microlearning

Spaced repetition learning techniques are among the most effective forms of embedding knowledge in learners. Fundamentally, it describes a process of revision where learning is repeated at increasing intervals until the knowledge is permanently implanted. Perhaps its close relation to traditional, unsophisticated rote learning has led to it being overlooked by eLearning-focussed L&D professionals in recent times, but it’s making a big comeback thanks to the latest developments in learning technology. One of the latest implementation’s is EdApp’s new Brain Boost feature.

Spaced repetition is a methodology made for mobile-based microlearning. With typical eLearning courses being long and tedious with completion rates struggling to surpass 20 per cent, it’s downright impractical to expect learners to retake the course many times over. However, with microlearning courses only taking minutes to complete, the potential for simply retaking one (which typically gives an instant completion rate boost to around 90 per cent) means spaced repetition learning becomes instantly accessible.
