- By answering a few simple questions at the beginning, a student can view lessons, examples, and tests customized to their own needs.
- The student can go through lessons at their own pace without needing to compete with faster or slower classmates. They can also repeat a lesson until it is perfectly understood.
- The second after they enter their answer, students can know whether it was correct. Similarly, the teacher has an instant, permanent record of the students' efforts.
