I’m using a community created course (NGSL - L2 Japanese with audio) with a group of students in a course I teach. When students go to my group, they can click on the green “Learn” button, or the orange “Review” button.
The problem is that I can’t find any clear information on the difference between these two options, and thus can’t advise my students on their use.
By my understanding, the whole idea of a “spaced repetition” algorithm is that the system manages when and how learners review items in the course—that it basically runs on autopilot. Doesn’t the “Learn” mode provide this? If it does, what is the purpose of the “Review” mode? And how should/could they be used in tandem?
If I’ve missed a clear discussion of these issues somewhere, please feel free to point me to the correct link. I’ll be very thankful for any clear direction on these points.
