    Your Learning Brain

    Nothing but the facts on how the brain works when you're learning.

    In this Daily Bits Of Facts course, we dig into the latest research in the field of neuroscience to bring you bite-sized lessons on how the brain learns when it's influenced by factors such as stress, emotions, sleep, curiosity and information overload. 

    You should take this course if you're interested in finding the answers to these questions:

    • How does lack of sleep influence learning?

    • What role does curiosity play in academic achievement?

    • How does stress affect your "memory factory" - the hippocampus?

    • Are there cognitive activities that help the aging brain stay sharp?

    Let's learn about learning!

    The Fundamentals of Learning: Finding Focus

    How to learn faster, better and more efficient

    If you want to become a better learner, the first thing you have to start training is your focus. 

    Why is that? Because memory has a limited capacity and attention determines what will be encoded in it. 

    Without being fully present during the memory encoding stage of learning, we can’t process the information mindfully, and therefore can’t encode it for long-term storage. To put it more bluntly, we’ll never be able to learn something we’re not paying attention to.  

    The topics of focus and attention have been studied by psychologists since the 1860s, and some argue even longer than that. We’ve delved into recent research to bring you the bite-sized version of the most recent findings, and how they can help you become a better learner.

    Together, we’ll uncover the research-backed answers to some of the most interesting questions about learning: 


    • How long should you try to pay attention for?

    • Are there different types of attention?

    • Should you handwrite your notes or type them?

    • Does multitasking improve learning? 

    Is there an optimal emotional stage for learning, and how can you manage your emotions to help you focus better? 

    Let’s get to it!

    Said about the course:

    "I work 6-10 hours per day in front of my computer and I have a huuuge problem with multitasking. This course gave me tools to really focus on what I'm supposed to focus on and I got some cool insights about learning, memory, and productivity at the same time!"

    The Fundamentals of Learning: Creating Connection

    Master the skill of learning

    Most people don’t think of learning as a skill. They think of learning as a given. Whether you’re good at it or not. Whether you have it or not. We’re here to tell you that anyone can become a good learner if they apply some techniques that have been proven to make learning stick.

    Knowing how to learn is a skill, and in this course, we’ll show you the science-backed tricks to get good at it. 

    In order to make learning stick, we need to create connections in our brain. By hooking the new information to previous knowledge, we ensure the encoding of what we’re learning deep into our memory.

    If you want to know how to create these connections that make learning more effective, then this course is for you.
