Thoughts on educational technology, psychology & enterprise
The more perceptive of you may notice that you don’t recognise the name of the author on this post, so I would like to take an opportunity to introduce myself! My name is Indrajeet (feel free to shorten this as you like; Indy/Indra are the most commonly used) and I am a third year medical student at UCL. I will be studying for my intercalated degree in Neuroscience this year, but right now, I am doing a few bits and pieces with Synap as an internship. I am interested in both enterprise and education, and working with the company has allowed me to combine these elements together nicely.
Hello everyone and welcome to the Synap Blog! We’re incredibly excited to launch Synap later this year. In the meantime we wanted to share some information on what it is and what it’s going to achieve.
Synap is an online education platform that uses insights in neuroscience to help people to learn more in less time. It will be available for free in October this year on iOS, Android and Web.
Throughout this post I’ll talk about the inefficiency and the problems with how we learn today, what neuroscience research tells us the solution is, and how Synap is part of that solution.
