With distributive learning,…the learner receives a little bit of content to be learned one day.…And then a little bit more the next day and a little bit more the day after that.…It turns out that distributing the learning over time leads to…better recall of the information later on.…Over a period of time,…the learner receives the same information as cramming, but is spread out.…And the spreading out of the content to be learned is what makes it easier and…
