Learn in Your “Micro-Moments” with MIT’s WaitSuite Apps

MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory has developed a suite of apps that let you learn while you are between floors on an elevator, waiting for a WiFi network to connect, or whatever. The WaitChatter instant messaging app will keep you on track, teaching you words in a foreign language related to the conversation you are having, while the Elevator Learning app will send you words to translate while your are waiting for an elevator to arrive. The team that developed the app claims that users learned about 57 new words in just over two weeks.
