Repetitive learning is a well-known method for effective memorization strategies. This is because repeating practices results in enhancing long-term memories, remembering things more easily. Fill-in-the-blank is one of the question formats often used in examinations. The advantage of this format is that memories can be deepened while understanding content within the sentences or paragraphs. These repetitive-focused strategies will be a big help not only for your job but examinations, and we explore fill-in-the-blank and show/hide workbooks in this article. The way you use these methods is very simple: just hide the part you want to memorize and check if you have memorized it or not. By repeating these activities, memories can be deepened while boosting understanding.

Now, let us focus on how to create the workbooks using a learning management system (LMS). Why don’t you unlock your memory with the power of digital technology?

Create a fill-in-the-blank workbook

In fill-in-the-blank workbooks, some keywords or specific items are shown as blank and learners are required to answer them. In general, short answers or multiple choices are used for this type of question.

Even though some software including spreadsheets can be used to create the workbooks, LMSs will make it more effective in that they allow users not only to create and deliver content but also track learners’ scores all in one environment.
