Thank you so much for a great product. I hope that other educators have been as impressed as we have been.
Thank you very much for all of your hard work. I want to give a strong message as to the effectiveness of Picmonic.
I really like the new datasheet [analytics dashboard] for educators! It's made my grading so easy to do.
My students love Picmonic. It’s been a lot of fun for them amidst the drudgery of being stuck at home. They are learning and retaining information while having fun, something we all need regardless of the circumstances in the world.
My tutoring students rave about Picmonic, saying, ‘Everything on the exam I reviewed with Picmonic I got right.’ They express less stress while studying, more confidence in knowledge, and longer recall of information studied. I would absolutely recommend Picmonic to students, especially visual learners.
I implemented a Picmonic quiz and video in Canvas for their OB content and it was very well received! It transferred well into the gradebook too. The basis of Picmonic is amazing and I would have paid substantially more for access when I went through nursing school! I truly appreciate all of your support and what you do for students. Picmonic has been a game-changer for several of our students.
