What is SuperMemo?
SuperMemo is a method of computer-aided learning which:
- adapts learning schedule to your individual aptitude and experience
- finds optimum intervals for refreshing information learnt before
- minimises the amount of repetition necessary to maintain your desired level of knowledge retention
- is based on scientific research into long-term memory.
With SuperMemo, you waste no time on revising the material you remember well, because learning is powered by the acclaimed SuperMemo algorithm. With regular learning and revising for just 10 minutes a day, everyone can learn over 500 new words per month with an average retention exceeding 95%.
The features of the application include:
- the possibility of synchronisation with supermemo.net - the online e-learning service
- adjustable level of knowledge retention (forgetting index)
- flexible learning plan
- learning and reviewing modes
- repetition and learning statistics.
The application can be run only on devices with iPhone OS 3.0. (or higher) installed. It has been tested on iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPad.
An Internet connection is necessary to download the courses. Because of their volume (e.g. 100MB) using the Wi-Fi connection for iPhone while downloading is recommended, as it reduces the cost compared to the EGDE or 3G technology transfer.
