Marine Education™ iPhone®, iPad® & iPod Touch® Application

 

 

 

MarineEd™ flashcards (& quiz) application– learn, study, test and revise all the essentials to help you be safe at sea.

One app; 12 categories; 3 levels of difficulty; covering all the fundamentals and suitable for anyone who loves watersports, anywhere in the world.

 

Normally, marine education apps cover just one or two themes, meaning that you would need to buy several different applications to aid your learning. But not this time! The MarineEd™ approach is focused on giving you one app, focusing on the essentials of ALL the categories, a quality, fun product that delivers value for money.

MarineEd™ - Committed to helping students learn more quickly and instructors teach more effectively. 

 

Research has proven time and time again that the most effective way of learning is by seeing (visual) and the most effective way of retaining is by doing (kinesthetic). This app forfills both of these mediums by offering a 'Study Mode' with a set of full colour, reversible flash card study aids; along with 'Quiz Mode' offering a chance to 'test yourself' through the use of visual and text mediums.
