**How adults learn the best. **

Adults want to learn when it’s for a purpose they understand. Extensive research indicates that adults prefer to be self-directed instead of relying on others for help. They must believe that the knowledge they gain will help them further their goals. Brainchild’s progams are self-directed and self-paced.
