Personalised learning solution - learning for a lifetime
E-Learning lessons as a random VIDEO screensaver
 
All learning needs reinforcing. Most adults will freely admit they remember little from their formal education.
 
Here's how to enhance retention. Copy the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) lessons like movie pirates do or even better yet get the original video. Next break that video up into multiple 2 to 3 minute MPEG clips. Then moments later have the MOOCs assistant app run randomly picking from those files then selects random 15 to 20 second segments to play 24X7 (from USB stick).
 
Having more than one related MOOCs can double the interest.
 
Google "e-learning is boring" Not when you have random it isn't.
 
For the parts that make genuine points of interest (quizzes), put some LARGE font text in front of that clip segment as a question, then the video clip followed by more text or pictures. A feature plays these 'text-video' groupings randomly!!

1:22 seconds just segments of the above video and text

Above videos No editing - just the original video file using timeline / timecode playback
 
The best MOOCs will eventually be taken off-line and be made available as DVD or BlueRay box sets.
 
When you have your MOOCs on your computer, that knowledge is yours forever, accessible at any time without an internet connection. What a great way to use up some of that unused disc space.
 
See how to use the app at "nobody shares knowledge better than this" This statement remains unchallenged after 2600+ responses.
 
If you are interested; send me a DVD or link to a specific MOOC and I'll return your USB stick or DVD set to play randomly. When creating DVDs I always put the TV format on as well as the PC player format files...
 
See which version you gravitate to; Random or Sequential. Video by nature is sequential (till this) thus boring...

For my site I use the app daily to select 5 random videos from 3300 on youtube
 
Those MOOCs sites that implement random lesson replay will leave their competition in the dust.
 
Imagine the uses: Digital Signage, StoreFront Real Estate sales, personal learning for a lifetime...
 
Your knowledge will outlive you if it is organized like this.
