PRODUCT FEATURES
1. HOW THE INTELLI-SYSTEM WORKS
For all of our Artificial Intelligence Learning™ Series units, we have created a
unique Intelli-System, which aims to help you learn as much as possible, in a way
that is best suited to you.
2. LEARNING MODES
In the Compact Notebook, you can choose from 3 different learning modes:
- Menu Mode
- Intelli-Challenge
- Adventure
MENU MODE - YOU CONTROL THE ACTION!
Pick the games and subjects you want to explore! How about Word games? Math
games? Or would you like Social Studies or Science? Check out the Main Menu
to get started.
INTELLI-CHALLENGE - WATCH THE INTELLI-SYSTEM WORK!
In this learning mode, the Intelli-System takes over and challenges you with all
kinds of different subjects and questions. You can choose from Fun Mode and
Challenge Mode.
FUN MODE
This mode is best when you want to relax and have some fun. The Intelli-System
will choose questions for you on subjects you’ve done particularly well in, or from
games that you have played often and enjoy most.
CHALLENGE MODE
INSTRUCTIONS & ACTIVITIES
How does the system work? As you play, the Intelli-System is always running,
and keeping track of how you do in each individual subject. After you’ve completed
enough games, the Intelli-System has enough information to guide your learning:
it knows when you should switch to another subject, which level of an activity is
best for you, and which subjects you could use more work on. Simply put, the
Intelli-System teaches you what you need to learn.
Now you’re in for a real challenge! The Intelli-System will test you with questions
from a subject area that may not be as familiar to you, and in which you could
use a little practice.
To access the Intelli-Challenge, press the
Intelli-Challenge from the Main Menu.
