About Adaptive Learning

Knowl­edge Ben­e­fits uses an adap­tive learn­ing plat­form called ampli­fire™. Ampli­fire inte­grates neu­ro­science and cog­ni­tive psy­chol­o­gy specif­i­cal­ly designed for adult learn­ers. Here’s how it works:

Priming

We ask the ques­tions first but it’s not a test! Research shows that prim­ing by answer­ing mul­ti­ple-choice ques­tions before study dra­mat­i­cal­ly pre­pares the mind for learn­ing and reten­tion. The prac­tice of retriev­ing infor­ma­tion acti­vates men­tal process­es that strength­en mem­o­ry encod­ing for longer reten­tion.

Adaptive Presentation

The pre­sen­ta­tion of infor­ma­tion is adapt­ed for each indi­vid­ual to acti­vate the pre­frontal cor­tex and release dopamine so that learn­ing is easy and fun. Refresh­ers deliv­ered at the right time solve the prob­lem of for­get­ting. Spaced rep­e­ti­tion is based on learn­ing pat­terns iden­ti­fied dur­ing the train­ing itself.

Engineered Spacing

Answer cor­rect­ly and you’ll know imme­di­ate­ly. But you’ll have to wait for the answers you get wrong. That’s because wait­ing for con­text after being exposed to infor­ma­tion dri­ves engage­ment and effec­tive retrieval. It’s a proven tech­nique called engi­neered spac­ing.

Confidence Measures

We ask you to assess your con­fi­dence in your answer choic­es to iden­ti­fy areas of con­fi­dent­ly held mis­in­for­ma­tion. This acti­vates two parts of the brain: the part that thinks about the cer­tain­ty of the infor­ma­tion and the part that holds the infor­ma­tion and trig­gers an emo­tion­al feel­ing nec­es­sary for learn­ing.

This evi­dence-based approach to learn­ing is proven to dra­mat­i­cal­ly improve com­pre­hen­sion and knowl­edge reten­tion:

  1. Up to 95% knowl­edge mas­tery
  2. Up to 79% reten­tion after 12 months
  3. Learn­ing in 50 – 75% less time
  4. Robust report­ing fea­tures indi­cate areas of “con­fi­dent­ly held mis­in­for­ma­tion” for review
  5. The refresh option allows you to retake the class from the begin­ning or only the ones you got wrong.

Here are some oth­er fea­tures of the cours­es:

Additional Learning

As you go through the ques­tions, there are oppor­tu­ni­ties for you to gain more knowl­edge about a par­tic­u­lar ques­tion. Just click the Addi­tion­al Learn­ing sec­tion at the bot­tom to learn more on the dif­fer­ent top­ics in that course.

Need to Know

If there is any addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion that is impor­tant for a par­tic­u­lar ques­tion, it will also appear at the bot­tom in the What You Need to Know sec­tion.

Master Each Module

The green bars in the top right cor­ner will show you how far you have pro­gressed through each mod­ule and will let you know when you have suc­cess­ful­ly com­plet­ed it. You can save your progress and come back to fin­ish a course at a lat­er date.

Module Results

When you have fin­ished a mod­ule, you’ll be able to see all the ques­tions and how many times it took you to answer each one cor­rect­ly. You can also expand the sec­tion on each ques­tion to see the full answer. If you like, you can redo the mod­ule until you get the results you want.

Because we under­stand that every­one learns dif­fer­ent­ly, you can also learn about ampli­fire tech­nol­o­gy by watch­ing the video below or read­ing more about the Sci­ence of learn­ing on their web­site.
