Ratings and Reviews
Great learning platform, limited variety of learning methods
I personally am more fond of listening to lectures than reading a lesson on my own, and because of this I sometimes can find myself mindlessly grazing over a lesson without truly learning it (yeah yeah, I’m in a minority I get it)... But unfortunately, for the week or so I’ve had the app I haven’t found a lesson which has an auditory option or something that fashion. I fully understand how insignificant this problem may seem, but with a $100 annual payment I would expect my money to be going to a learning platform which can cater to my specific learning style, perhaps with a 10 minute in-depth explanation on a topic or even a whole lesson if I my attention is divided (for example if I wanted to listen to a lesson on my way to work).
Other than this minor problem I’ve experienced with the app, I have enjoyed the engaging lessons and in-depth explanations. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone, especially if the visual examples and written lessons are the way you personally prefer to learn. Although for those of us who prefer an auditory method of learning it can be difficult to fully take in the information in an easily digestible way. 4/5, needs more lessons in my opinion (more are coming so it’s not a terrible problem) and a way to keep learners of all styles engaged in every lesson. Great app :)
Good, but not upfront
I really enjoyed the mini quizzes, though I didn’t understand some of the material I still gained a lot of information in some of the explanations.
My *only* complaints are: try not to be so vague on some founding principles if at the beginning of the course if it says “Not to worry! You’ll learn about it in chapter so and so...’’ but then don’t explain the fundamentals if the course is for absolutely beginners? 🙄🙄🙄
Secondly, let us know we have to pay for the course before hand! Please let that be included at least in the introductory section, gave an option to buy the full package. Really took me by surprise, I’m sure others as well.
Otherwise I really enjoy the app. I’m going to buy it only because I have no doubt it would greatly improve my understanding and comprehension of material. Thank you all for developing and writing the content of this app.
Fallacies Discovered in First Two Minutes
App claimed the International Space Station (ISS) is ‘weightless.’ This is a slightly erroneous term but usually a forgivable mistake, if uttered by a layperson. However, as this is an educational app, I believe it should be held to higher standards and user proper rhetoric. Honestly, I am greatly disappointed because I was excited to learn some new trivia! It is a great injustice that this app is propagating slightly skewed information. I would find it a better exercise to fully explain the idea rather than hastily throw out a common misnomer, which even further normalizes this incorrect sentiment. Knowing that people who are not already well-verses in physics would probably not recognize this mistake makes it an even more egregious error!
I am fed up with the educational system opting out of truly explaining difficult subjects. There is this trend of substituting them with slightly incorrect, water-downed, and much easier to explain versions of the true problem statement. The responsibility should lie within the institution to face this challenges comprehensively, so that we can build a model for the general public that cohesively explains such difficult subject matter.
