Learn more efficiently with SlimStampen

Why more time spend on learning ready knowledge such as definitions and concepts than is necessary? SlimStampen is a research based adaptive learning system that makes learning factual knowledge easier and more efficient by adapting the learning strategy to each user. Scientific studies show that students learn up to 10% more information in the same time with SlimStampen than with traditional teaching methods (van Rijn et al., 2009; Sense et al., 2016). Because SlimStampen accurately estimates the individual learning process of each student, it can also replace traditional testing.

Learning factual and declarative information with SlimStampen

Factual knowledge, such as knowledge of concepts and definitions, is a basic requirement for achieving higher-level learning objectives, where factual knowledge is applied. In practice, students do not always master this basic knowledge, because learning factual knowledge takes a lot of time and is often considered boring. Therefore, students will not learn optimally during the lecture.

SlimStampen makes learning basic knowledge easier and more fun for students. SlimStampen ensures that students are already familiar with the material before the lecture, without additional time costs to teach about these materials. This leaves more time during lectures to achieve other learning objectives

 

SlimStampen at universities

Ghent University

In Ghent, SlimStampen is used to learn concepts for the course Introduction to Cognitive Psychology. Although SlimStampen is used on a voluntary basis in Ghent, most students use the system to prepare for lectures and exams. 

SlimStampen is able to measure the individual learning process of the students, by assessing memory parameters estimated for each student. These parameters corresponded to the final grades on the exam of the 2021/2022 academic year. In addition, the use of SlimStampen was predictive of the exam grade for the course. Students who used SlimStampen as during the course scored higher on average on the exam than students who did not use SlimStampen. 

Students who used SlimStampen scored on average a higher final mark on the exam than students who did not use SlimStampen.

University of Groningen

SlimStampen is used in a large number of courses at the University of Groningen, including the immunopharmacology course. In this course, students were asked to practice with SlimStampen on a weekly basis, in preparation for the lectures.

At the end of the course, the students rated SlimStampen with an average mark of 8.2. Most students gave a 10.

Assessment of SlimStampen by immunopharmacology students in Groningen.

“SlimStampen is a great way to learn facts, because the system measures which questions you find difficult to remember. That made studying for the lectures a lot easier.”

Integration in your Learning Management System (LMS) or electronic learning environment (ELO)

We offer a complete web application in which teachers can create lessons and keep track of study progress. Students can practice using this application. When they have practiced enough, SlimStampen sends a grade to your LMS. As a result, teachers do not have to give grades for testing factual knowledge, spend less time in class on ready knowledge, and do not have to prepare exam questions about factual knowledge.

Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) integration

Our web application can be easily integrated into the online learning environment of any educational software that uses LTI; an educational application standard developed by the IMS Global Learning Consortium to integrate external tools, such as SlimStampen, into ELOs and LMSs. With our LTI integration we offer the following functionalities: 

  • Users can practice without limits in our user-friendly learning environment.

  • Users can always view their learning statistics and history.

  • The user's learning performance is automatically summarized with 'mastery credits' that the student earns when the material is well learned. These credits can conveniently be used to assign grades in the grade center of your LMS or ELO.

  • Via the LMS or the ELO, teachers can create lessons with open questions or multiple choice items, share lessons, and keep track of all students' progress in the class.

  • The students' data is always well protected (SlimStampen complies with the AVG).

  • The house style of the web application can be fully adapted to your wishes.
