Picmonic brings the power of social visual platforms to learning. We help people create, share and explore highly effective audiovisual study cards, called Picmonics “pictorial mnemonics”. Picmonics are not only proven to increase memorization capacity and improve long-term recall of information, they incorporate humor and unforgettable graphics to make learning fun. The Picmonic vision is of a social educational platform where anyone can author, share and discover Picmonics, to improve academic, professional and personal learning outcomes.
The Picmonic story began in medical education, where tens of thousands of learners around the world are utilizing Picmonics to learn high stakes pre-medical, medical, and nursing content and increase their test scores -- but that is just the beginning. Millions of postsecondary and professional education students across the globe will learn with Picmonic and have fun while mastering information like never before.
