Don’t Memorise goes Interstellar!

15070904 warpmath rocket

Ever since the sound barrier was broken, scientists have become obsessed with how they can break the light speed barrier! Science fiction writers have given us many images of interstellar travel, but traveling at the speed of light is simply imaginary at present. The concept of ‘Warp drive’, a term commonly used for faster than light travel remains highly speculative.

Whilst we wait for science to advance, take your mind on an interstellar journey with our ‘Warp Math’ videos…….

Challenge your brain’s fitness and whizz through mathematical galaxies with us!  Together we will solve complicated mathematical problems in the fastest and most efficient way. Travel through our series of videos on multiplication of large numbers and complex division all the way to squares and square roots and cube and cube roots.

So go ahead, ignite your grey matter with our ‘Warp Math’ workout and travel faster than the speed of light!!

Team Work, the ‘Force’ behind Don’t Memorise

“The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together”

Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi

Team Work

In celebrating ‘Star Wars Day’ we would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the ‘Force’ that gives ‘Don’t Memorise’ its power – our team! The brains behind all the content in our videos is Ganesh P. Ganesh, by profession an engineer, is an experienced online tutor – his real interest lies in creating learner centric ‘lessons’ through technology!

Our technical and creative team members work their magic with Ganesh’s content. Ganesh J, Rahul, Pratik and Akash love trying out new software and work diligently to ensure a visual experience that uses the most cutting edge technology! Complementing the work that they do we have the incredibly talented husband and wife duo – Zeedee and Shabia. Zeedee is the voice behind more than a thousand videos. She works tirelessly through voice over after voice over, often into the wee hours of the morning while we are all still sleeping…even Shabia! Shabia, with his passion for experimenting with music composes the scores that you hear in all our videos.

We also have Shirley, our in house artist who has sketched many of the images you see in our videos. Their combined talent is what brings ‘learning to life’ in our captivating videos!

So who reaches out to our community?

Keya runs the editorial for our blog, as well as interacts with our Facebook friends! Having left the corporate sector Keya has free-lanced as an English Language trainer, both privately and with NGOs.  She is currently writing her thesis in the implementation of alternative learning styles, which is her passion.

We also have two lovely interns as part of our team. Samira, who enjoys helping students solve their queries, interacts on various sites on our behalf. Samyukta uses her cryptic mind to think up questions for our upcoming quizzes. The challenge lies not only in answering questions but also in creating them!

DontMemorise.com is masterfully built and continuously developed by Bas. Bas, with his specialist expertise has designed an innovative User Interface for what would otherwise be a dull educational website.

Finally, what is any great team without a mentor? Yes, we do have our very own ‘Grand Jedi Master’, who guides, advises and inspires us! The collective contribution of all our team members is the energy field that drives our mission – ‘Don’t Memorise, Know More!’ May the Force be with you!

Don’t Memorise, Know More!

Contemporary learning is not just about ‘knowing things’ but about ‘knowing more’!

So here’s what Don’t Memorise is all about:

We are passionate about creating captivating educational videos that are freely accessible to all.

With our ‘Don’t Memorise, Know More!’ philosophy the learner always remains at the very heart of what we do. We relate theory to real life using a simple story format for better understanding. Taking into consideration the average concentration levels of learners all our videos are bite sized. These are just a few of the ways that make our videos learner centric!

Don’t Memorise can be used by students to review concepts, parents to refresh their knowledge and even teachers who ‘flip’ their classrooms. Right now we have an online library of around 1300 videos, regularly accessed by individuals in North America, Australia and Asia. We are working on adding many more videos in the coming months!

We look forward to sharing our journey and experiences with you here.
