We think of memory as a mysterious force in our lives. But the truth is, while the brain is complex and we don’t know everything about it, we do know some things about memory. We know enough to increase the chances of learners’ retaining information if they consume information in the best way.

You can use this knowledge, too, to design courses with the mechanics of memory in mind.

This guide will give you some key fundamentals to keep in mind (Haha! Get it?), including:

  • The three stages of memory.
  • Three main forms of memory storage.
  • Converting short-term memory to long-term memory.
  • Ways to improve consolidation and retrieval in learners.
