"Your topic content - our flexible learning platform"
iCapisce follows the time honoured learn-practice-play-rest-test model of education research.
Health professionals, carers, family members and care recipients can create personalised content in the form of iCapisce topics and access them periodically thereby stimulating neuroplasticity.
Share topics publicly, privately, securely with classes, study groups or individuals.
A few minutes of learning each day will reinforce existing memories and help to build new ones.
Daily practice will keep those memories alive and useful for years to come.
Playing under time pressure will improve your information retrieval speed.
Testing improves your aggregate score.
Celebrating your personal best helps to monitor your achievements.
Reporting enables your multidisciplinary health team monitor your progress.
A multi-modal memory builder that uses personal content in a secure learn-practice-play-test platform to build strong storage memory and fast retrieval memory.
Allied health professionals, carers, family members and care recipients can create personalised content in the form of iCapisce topics and access them periodically thereby stimulating neuroplasticity.
As participants utilise iCapisce, new neuronal pathways are built through the production of new proteins and synapses. Repetitive transmissions traversing the same neuronal pathways means patterns become embedded, making recall better and faster with fewer mistakes. Recent research has demonstrated that neurogenesis does indeed continue into and throughout adult life.
What is iCapisce?
iCapisce can be used as a cognitive stimulation therapy to improve mild cognitive impairment and may delay the onset of moderate to severe dementia.
Why should I use iCapisce?
iCapisce may help to reinforce existing memories and promote neural plasticity.
Using the Life Book to record your personal history will assist in keeping your treasured memories fresh.
Alternatively, you may want to create a topic that celebrates your sports team, graduate class or project team and share it via social media.
How does it work?
iCapisce uses three modalities - sight, sound and touch - to engage more of the brain in the memory building process. Content is presented in a variety of fun formats with successively difficult challenges. The tougher the challenge, the stronger the usable memory.
Who makes my topics?
iCapisce has a topic authoring module for health professionals, carers, family members and care recipients using personalised content.
Authoring topics requires general computer skills with some knowledge of image cropping. Online tutorials are available to walk you through the creation of your first topic. Tutorials can be viewed repeatedly.
May I create topics for my care recipient?
Yes. Absolutely. Create them and share them via a private study group. (We can't advocate or condone that you use their login.)
Is my topic content private?
By default, yes.
You may choose to share topics with your friends on Facebook and other social media platforms if you trust them.
You may also choose to share some topics publicly. They may be useful to many people but, by default, all topics are private.
Are my personal details secure?
iCapisce stores minimal personal information. The information that is stored [first, last, email, organisation, class, subject] is only visible to family members and carers who already have permission and an implied duty of care.
Please note that no online service is 100% secure. Industry-wide security exploits are exposed every few months and we respond accordingly. Our servers are maintained in a secure data-centre with regular patches being applied to each layer of the software stack as they become available.
How much does it cost?
iCapisce costs $2/person/year to create, learn and share your topics.
You may also purchase additional topics from the topic exchange.
