    Know Your Europe
     
    After careful consideration and research a novel learning concept was developed for all our geography software. The learning concept developed divided learning into three steps. These steps allow the user to learn at their own pace, the three levels are:
    • Study Your Europe - A valuable reference resource.
    • Quiz Your Europe - A point and click style quiz.
    • Examine Your Europe - An exam of all the topics.
     

    Study Section
    The Study Section is a valuable reference area and is ideal for the user to study and revise each topic. Detailed information on each feature is provided including audio pronunciation of each feature. The Study Section enables the user to have a clear understanding of each geographic feature before proceeding to the Quiz and Examine sections.

    The Study area of Know Your Europe 2.0 has been greatly improved and now provides a description of every feature and includes over sixty scenic photos. Each of these descriptions can easily be expanded by our direct link to Wikipedia.com, the free online encyclopaedia.

    Each country now has an excellent map highlighting the main features and cities, the countries national flag is also included. The About Europe Section features satellite photos of Europe which is great for use with an overhead projector.
