Students, Teachers, Public Speakers, Singers, Actors, Lawyers, Hobbyists, Polyglots & Poets… Learn Anything was created for those of us who love to learn by heart.
Designed in collaboration with a leading UK education expert, "Learn Anything Free" makes learning easy, fun, and global - using the all-time best memory techniques handed down to us through generations, and now confirmed by science.
Make your own multimedia learning loops on iPhone/iPad to memorize any material you wish to learn in the minimum possible time, and with minimum effort… share your loops with the world if you are feeling generous… and download loops created by other users around the world.
Learn Anything lets you create, learn, and share "Learning Loops". To start, record yourself or a teacher saying aloud whatever you want to learn into the iPhone or iPad microphone, then add text and photos to create your own personal multimedia learning experience.
Whatever you need to study, Learn Anything makes it easy, fun and effective: Homework, vocabulary, medical terms, plays, law statutes, poems, exam topics, bird calls, maths, song lyrics, plumbing, faces, famous paintings, jokes, scriptures, historical figures, first aid, plays, presentations, how to make great cocktails, dates and names…
Advanced users can prepare images using graphics software, or download images from the internet in Safari on the iPhone/iPad, for use in Learning Loops.
The central memorization technique used by Learn Anything is known as "Spiral Learning", and has been used for thousands of years to pass on knowledge in oral traditions such as story-telling and music.
The secret is this: cut into smaller pieces, learn the smaller pieces, then learn longer-and-longer groups of the smaller pieces until you know the entire material by heart. Simple!
Language teachers sometimes refer to the "Snowball" principle, where new vocabulary is introduced while at the same time revising previously learned material; by looping shorter-then-longer sections of Learning Loops we are using a similar approach.
These traditional methods of oral repetition, revision and recall, in conjunction with "association" (linking a series of images in a highly imaginative and personal way), will help you learn faster, more, and more successfully, than ever before.
By concentrating on small sections, then gradually looping longer sections, you will be amazed how fast you can learn even large amounts of material that you previously thought impossible to remember.
A central feature of Learn Anything is the ability to share your Learning Loops with other users on Twitter, and download loops made by other users worldwide. The loops that you create and share may help others across the globe to achieve their learning goals.
Learn Anything is easy to use with a wide range of features to make learning fun and easy:
· Create Learning Loops to memorize anything, no matter how long.
· Use "association" by adding photos to each phrase
· Share & download loops in the "Loop Library"
· Use gestures to navigate the loops
· "Auto" recording for easy recording of long texts.
· "Manual" recording for precise control.
· Edit your own loops, and improve others' loops
· Categorize and search for online loops by "Tags" & "Language"
· Rate Loops
· Bookmark your "Favourite Loops" for fast access.
Scientific studies have confirmed the benefits of memorization software such as "Learn Anything" for Alzheimer sufferers and carers. For those of us fortunate enough to enjoy good memory, software such as "Learn Anything" can help keep our memory in pristine condition for as long as possible.
· iOS 3.2 or later
· Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
· The free version is fully functional - but limits the number of learning loops you can keep on your iPhone/iPad, and displays discrete ads on some pages.
