Drillster for Education

Drillster is an innovative e-learning program that enables students to learn, memorize, retain and test any kind of learning material in a smart and efficient way. On the PC, laptop, smart phone or tablet (like the iPad). The adaptive Drillster algorithm will enable students to learn more in less time and to memorize the learned material for a longer period of time. Drillster has been based on scientific research (the Leitner system).

Developing the right knowledge is important for any training course or study program. Both students, their parents and the school management set high standards when it comes to the results of a training. How do you ensure that the learning material is memorized in an efficient way? And how do you measure the real proficiency per individual student?

Scientific research has shown that people forget up to 80% of the learning material if they do no longer actively work with the material they learned. So how can knowledge be retained if this knowledge is important to successfully finish a training course? And how can students remain motivated when they need to learn a lot for their study program?

Drillster is the right solution. Students that use Drillster learn more in less time and will remember the learned material for a longer period of time. As an educational institution you can easily distribute and monitor learning material, set learning objectives, manage results and ensure that knowledge is properly anchored.
