Article Title: Remember Recency?
Publication: Integrated Learnings: eLearning
Summary: Recency is the tendency to be more likely to remember information from the end of a sequence. This article describes how eLearning can harness this simple, yet powerfully effective tendency to help learners retain new skills and knowledge.
I’ve seen many eLearning lessons end with reiterating a lesson’s objectives. This seems to miss the opportunity to take advantage of the recency effect. Instead, we can end eLearning lessons in ways that prompt learners to recall important information or have a meaningful moment of insight.
