In general, what is this all about?: A new kind of learning experience is about to happen to you. You are going to learn by actively participating rather than passively reading, watching videos, or listening alone. What you experience will be a series of brief screen (frame) presentations. You will pass from one frame to the next only by typing words that are missing. This will require you to think a little each time and demonstrate that you understand each point. Your struggle to supply the missing word or words will take more effort than passive methods, but this moment of struggling is when deep learning occurs. Extensive scientific research has clearly demonstrated the superiority of this active learning method. The bottom line is that you will learn more thoroughly and recall much more of the content than you would by just reading a textbook or webpage, seeing a video, or attending a lecture.

How much do the tutorials cost?: Some tutorials are free; you are welcomed as our guest. Some are available at a low cost. Tutorials may be selected for purchase by a group of students enrolled in a course or workshop. The tutorials costs are kept low to encourage many people to learn about the science of behavior. When nominal fees are charged, the funds cover website maintenance, hosting costs, management of grades and educational credits, and development of additional tutorials.

What kind of feedback will I get as I progress through the tutorials? In every frame you will see a percent correct score displayed. When the tutorials are assigned as part of an approved course or workshop, summative feedback (e.g., mid-course and final grade reports) will be provided to the instructor.
