About this course
Have you ever wondered why you don't have many childhood memories, yet you can easily remember all the words to a song you liked ten or even twenty years ago?

As this process progresses, our memory also develops. In our online course, you will learn about the principles of how memory works, discover memorisation techniques, receive recommendations from scientists and unexpected and cool facts about memory.

Course structure

Lesson 1. The mystery of human memory

Many believe that memory is like a video camera that records the events of our lives in detail. Then, at some later stage, we can view them by simply pressing the "Play" button. Some imagine that our brain stores an archive with many files, from which we can get the necessary data at any time. Still, both of these ideas are not entirely accurate. In this lesson, you will find out what human memory is, study its types, and learn how memories are formed. Moreover, we will discuss how you can improve your memory.

In the additional materials, you will find a template that will help you remember the main events of the past month and how you feel about them. Furthermore, you will be able to learn strange but true facts about the brain.

Lesson 2. What contributes to better memory?

Have you ever wondered how stage actors can memorize a two-hour play and reenact it without hesitation? The secret lies in the fact that they attribute emotion and meaning to each dialog scene. Actors work hard to understand why a particular character says and does certain things and then try to embody that character as accurately as possible.

In this lesson, you will discover how to use emotions and associations to speed up memorization. An association links individual facts, events, objects, or phenomena in our memory. Your judgments, views, and tastes are primarily based on associative memory. To train it, you need to connect the information you know with new data. But that's not all: you will also realize that sleep, rest, and physical activity affect memory improvement.

Additionally, you will be able to study material that will help you see how exercise helps our brain.

Lesson 3. Structuring

Think of your friends who are proud of their voluminous lecture notes. They probably spent ages writing them and never got any use out of it. Poorly outlined notes only waste your time and make it harder to memorize information. To remember a large amount of data, you need to structure it. This lesson is about memorizing information by structuring it.

In addition, you will learn different ways to take notes and get examples of indices that you can use to format notes.

Lesson 4. Mnemonics

Imagine that you have come to a party where you don't know anyone. You may feel uncomfortable at first. However, if you suddenly meet someone you know, then your mood will change for the better. The mnemonics-based memorization system works in the same way. An idea or thought that comes to you all of a sudden may sound obscure and will disappear. Yet, if you intervene in this process and connect the information with something or someone previously known, it will remain in your memory.

Mnemonics make memorization easier. If you learn how to use them, you can remember better numbers, texts and terms, names, faces, foreign words, and speeches. This lesson will teach you how to use information memorization techniques and memory training tricks.

In the additional materials, you will find special exercises for memory development.

Lesson 5. Mnemonics 2.0

You already know that memory can be short-term and long-term. However, memory differs not only in the time of storing information in it but also in the content of this information. In this lesson, you will learn three types of learning. You will study techniques for remembering the names and faces of new acquaintances, tricks for memorizing foreign words, and the method of sensory interaction, which will help you to communicate fluently in a foreign language.

Additionally, you will receive a table template that will help you develop long-term memory. Furthermore, you can look through special exercises for training visual memory.

Lesson 6. Revision

There are only 24 hours in a day. So naturally, we would like to use as much time as possible for sleep, hobbies, fun activities with the family, or something like that. To achieve this goal, you need to find a method that will allow you to spend less time studying while retaining the same amount of information. In this lesson, we will provide you with memory exercises that will help you remember information once and for all.

In the additional materials, you will find a list of exercises for spaced revision.
