Academic Learning

Sustainable and holistic learning

In the age of digital transformation, students should benefit from the digital Academic Learning App when acquiring scientific knowledge.

Learning is not limited to theoretical knowledge. The focus should be placed on the development of skills. Modern societies need to completely rethink academic learning. In addition to scientifically substantiated knowledge, the demand for creativity, critical and analytical thinking, complex problem-solving skills and emotional intelligence will increase in the professional world of tomorrow.

Mobile learning at any time and any place

Mobile learning at any time and any place has become part of the learning culture for younger generations. Students will be able to deepen their cognitive knowledge on their smartphones.

Digital learning formats are not meant to replace traditional books, libraries, seminars, lecture halls or even the campus within the academic world. On the contrary, digital learning aims to attract new, interested students by providing the opportunity to actively interact with theoretical knowledge.

Based on their individual learning type, students can choose between quizzes, flash cards, videos or podcasts to acquire new knowledge in bite-sized chunks. Case studies also support learning transfer. A voluntary knowledge test motivates students to actively self-directed learning.

Structured learning units are part of a larger scale learning arrangement. The well-formulated learning content, including references to scientific literature, was designed to meet the demands of mobile learning.

One of the most effective learning strategies for anchoring knowledge in the long term is answering test questions while learning. This ‘Testing Effect’ is also reinforced every time previously obtained knowledge is recalled from memory.

Immersive game mechanics such as direct feedback, high scores, challenges and achievements encourage students to stay engaged, even with repetitive coursework.

The Digital Academic Learning App

The Academic Learning App was developed to offer students optimal conditions for a self-motivated and mobile learning experience.

The idea of our Academic Learning App was born in the lecture halls of the University of Applied Management and of the Technical University Munich.

As founder of straightlabs and as a professor, Peter wanted to reintroduce fun into his students’ learning process. Today, they appreciate the learning experience our digital Academic Learning App offers.
