Iknow.jp

This is another online learning tool, which seems to work the way most online learning tools do, and in fact the way most classrooms do; lots and lots of quizzes. I don’t really have time to sign up and search it properly – I have a ridiculous number of sites sending me e-mails about learning now – but looking over it it seems to have a few nice features. The first thing I looked for is the fact that it’ll sort you into an ability-accurate level of learning, which is fantastic – many sites will just force you to start from the basics, which means if you’re switching around all the time trying to find the best deal you’re going to be frustrated fast.

The other thing I really like is the detailed record keeping of progression, where you can plan how much you want to study in advance and see how long you’ve studied each day. I think this is great for short-term goals, long-term goals, and feeling like you’re progressing, which can sometimes feel hard to see.
