Let’s face it. After completing a course, I am sometimes very surprised to know how quickly I forget what learned in class. Of course, this does not apply just to MOOCs, but also to other forms of education. I hope I am not the only one having this problem.
So, my question to you is: what do you do to retain your knowledge?
For classes that are essential to me, I create flash cards and occasionally review them. But I am afraid, this is VERY time consuming. Also, whenever I review the cards, I am frustrated in how much I forget. But, put it positively, this is probably an important step for my learning process.
For other classes, I upload the sillabus with some notes on an app, so that I can search and review the course material when necessary.
I am unsure of what works and what doesn’t, so I would love to hear your opinion and experiences!
