Learning Paths

We call the idea "Learning paths." You could also call it "Learn by definition." The idea is simply to read a series of definitions related to the same topic in sequence, one definition at a time, as a way to learn (or relearn).

Here's how...

1. Choose one of the subject categories listed below, such as "Learning Path: Basic Computer Concepts."

2. Clicking on it will take you to another page with words listed and intended to be read in the sequence presented, left to right.

3. Clicking on a word will take you to that definition. After you read that definition, simply press the BACK key at top left and return to the reading sequence list.

4. Proceed one at a time through each word in the list until you reach the end!

We're still improving the Learning Paths. As time goes by, they'll each get longer and we will add new Paths with more focused subject categories. In fact, we expect to be updating the Paths continuously.

Thanks for trying the idea out. Whether it works or doesn't work for you, please let us know.
