AskUp is an educational tool to help you make sense and remember material you learn in class, at home, or in the hospital. It uses evidence-based principles to improve your learning.
After any educational event—a lecture, a reading, a patient encounter, a video-generate your own question and answer. Periodically, test yourself on these questions to make sure you remember the material. If your classmates also create questions on AskUp, quiz yourself on their questions as well.
Self-testing has been shown to be one of the most effective learning strategies. Generating questions will require you to recall information, identify the main points, reflect on how it relates to things you’ve previously learned, and generate your own answer—powerful techniques for learning!
"AskUp is a revolutionary educational tool to enhance learning. It empowers learners to create their own questions and answers, employing techniques that have been shown to improve learning and retention."
