The Auto-Learn (Auto-grow) feature is an option to auto-grow items.
The Auto-Grow feature is a debug and testing feature, a way to skip the planting. It seems to prematurely age items. it is designed to skip the planting process for users that know a word but still wish to practice (water) it. it mimics a post-first-watering state. It will put unplanted items directly into long-term memory . It just skips the harvesting stage and put them directly into long-term memory
- In short, when you press the Auto-grow button all the words are suddenly ready to be watered.
- No points though!
Auto-Grown Plant may require more Multiple Choice Watering than any other plant that has been planted normally.
How to use Auto-grow feature?
- Course creators/contributors can access the preview and auto-grow links from the level page: when you go to plant seeds in a level it's just above the ignore button
- Other users can Add Preview & Auto-Grow Buttons to level pages [discussion thread ; thanks to carpiediem]
- you can still auto grow anything by changing /grow/ with /auto_learn/ in the level planting url : http://www.memrise.com/course/123456/course-name/1/auto_learn/
Auto-grow is great for courses in which you immediately want to enter the test/exam stage.
And, yes, autogrow can be helpful for conjugation practice courses.
