Totally different way of learning—fun, intuitive, challenging but not intimidating

I’ve only been using Brilliant a week, but it’s so much more interesting and engaging and fun than similar learning apps. The experience is like a combination of doing mini- courses with puzzle and game apps. I *never* learned math this way—it would have changed the whole experience for me! (I’m almost sixty years old and doing this mostly for fun, though I’m hoping it might help me with some novice level coding I’m also learning.) The interface is also very attractive and clean.

My only suggestion: offer two levels of explanation. There were a few questions where the explanation was so brief, it was kind of puzzle itself. I understand you want to keep things brief—that’s good. That’s why I suggest two levels of explanation: first button says “Show explanation.” But then another button appears at the bottom that says, maybe, “ Need more detailed explanation?” for us beginners. But this is a minor critique. I’m really enjoying it. Highly recommend!

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 :)

Dear Brilliant team, please update the iPad UI

I don’t know about using brilliant on my phone or laptop but interacting with the brilliant app is quite uncomfortable when using split screen. Whenever I’m browsing the course library on landscape mode or portrait mode and select a course to preview, the course overview and course sections vertically split the available screen real estate. It produces a very unflattering squished layout in which reading the course overview or seeing the various sections of each “chapter” is an uncomfortable experience. I don’t need to continue seeing course overview after I’ve read it once. I believe the course overview and course chapters shouldn’t be split and instead should be static at the top of the page in order to use the whole page real estate to comfortable horizontally scroll throughout the chapter sections (Think of the Netflix app for example, the main show they’re promoting at the top and different shows are scrollable horizontally, it would be quite annoying if we had to forcibly see the show they’re promoting everywhere as we continue scrolling down/ up while browsing).

Other than that brilliant is amazing, I would just like it to be more split screen friendly on mobile devices.
