Most note taking software allows users to save information digitally and then recall it at a later date. Wiznotes understands that the users are entering information, not just so that they can retrieve it at a later date, but in order to help them learn that information for their course.

Wiznotes remembers which items she answered incorrectly so that when jarnla is tested again, the random items presented to her will be weighted to test her more often on the items that she does not know so well yet.


This is just one small example of how Wiznotes helps students to actually learn what they write notes about. From feedback we get from students we hear that they very much like the collapsible sections that Wiznotes has. A user can mark that she knows very annotte a few paragraphs of her notes – then those paragraphs will collapse and only a title will be displayed. This is extremely useful when students review their notes before their exams. There are many more features presented in demo videos at http: I hope this answers your question.
