We believe that a little bit of learning goes a long way, learning in bite sized chunks every day is easier for our members to access, and they are more likely to retain what they’ve learnt through repetition.
Like learning to drive, it seems like a big task at the start, but you learn a little bit in each lesson, until it feels like second nature.
That’s where Wranx comes in.
Wranx is an online training tool that can be accessed on any device, and uses repetition to increase knowledge retention even with as little as 2-3 minutes of training a day.
Wranx gives you a series of ‘Daily drills’ of around 10 questions a day. What makes Wranx different is that you will be asked a question and then shown the answer. You then have to Rank how well you knew that answer. Wranx then schedules the question to appear again at a later date… further in the future if you were confident with that question, and sooner if you are not as strong on that topic. This method is scientifically proven to accelerate the learning process!
