Picmonic offers a online application that delivers original audio-visual mnemonics to help students in higher education master complex information. Unlike other study aids, Picmonic provides an enjoyable learning experience while improving long term memory retention and exam performance.
Picmonic was born from the imagination of two medical students at the University of Arizona College of Medicine. After feeling the universal pain of rigorous exam preparation demanded throughout their lives, they collaborated with other students and professionals to create a solution for other students that struggle with memorization and information mastery.
Ron Robertson and Adeel Yang founded the company in July 2011. The web-based learning application delivers interactive pictorial mnemonics for the most difficult and most frequently tested topics throughout medical education. Employing neuroscience research and scientific evidence of the effectiveness of audio-visual memory, picmonic translates complex medical terminology into original illustrations and stories to make concepts easier to digest and markedly more memorable. The software application was designed with multiple learners in mind. While the methodology is visually driven, audio instructions, textual summaries, and collaborative discussion boards accompany each picmonic topic to cater to various learning styles.
Picmonic's initial customer response has been overwhelming. A preliminary pilot study yielded results demonstrating that students studying with Picmonic improved long term memory retention by 162 percent. Students exposed to the beta product not only responded positively, but requested extended access, claiming they could already feel the long-term advantages and applicability.
As the field of education technology and innovation continues to grow, Picmonic plans to grow with it. The founder's vision was to spark a curiosity for creativity in every classroom, and Picmonic's imaginative and memorable process truly reinvents the way students remember, retain, and recall information.
