We recommend that all courses on BuiltIntelligence include recap exercises/tasks that helps users apply their knowledge to real world scenarios. In our courses these exercises are often referred to as "Lets Recap" exercises. These exercises draw on the tried and tested principle of spaced repetition and also makes course content more digestible because its presented from a user’s perspective.
Because we strongly believe in the power of active learning, it is a requirement for all premium courses to include at least 2 recap exercises per course. This provides your users regularly spaced reinforcement of the learning and adds meaningful and memorable interactivity.
Here are three tips for creating Let’s recaps that your users will benefit from:
- Use characters in suitable job roles to frame the task.
- Make the narrative for the task instructions relevant and easy to understand.
- Keep it concise so you test the users understand of the subject not their reading skills.
