For this final part of KWestions around flashcard learning, feature or product I invited Andrew Cohen, the founder and CEO of Brainscape on the show.
Brainscape have a scientific approach to the usage of flashcards for learning. The company have already rolled out French and Spanish learning apps for the iPhone, iPod touch and also iPad called Vocab Genius and Vocab Junkie. Don’t miss on trying these out as they’re currently available for free!
In part three of this mini series about flashcards and the question if they are an actual product or “just” a feature in the framework of a bigger picture I talked with Ali Yildirim, one of the three co-founders of CoboCards.
CoboCards is a German based startup and I already had the pleasure of interviewing Tamim Swaid, another co-founder of CoboCards for EDUKWEST.
In part 2 of my KWestions series with startups in the flashcard learning space I covered a service called Memrise.
Memrise is a UK-based startup which has a clear focus on a more scientific approach of helping people to learn, or as they say on their website
At Memrise, we’re integrating everything we know about the art and science of memory to help you learn faster.
I am currently collecting a couple of interviews with startups in the flashcard learning sector to answer the question, or at least trying to answer, if flashcards are just a feature or if you can actually build an entire company around it.
This is an excerpt of my KWestions interview with Greg Detre, co-founder and CEO of Memrise which are taking scientific approach to the subject.
