Meta-learning-focused activities

The development focus until now has been on making extensive content consumption tools (web, ebooks, video) available and starting to collect data. notrobes (see above) already has some basic information on what the system knows your vocabulary knowledge, including the number of times the word has been seen, definitions looked up, etc. The next phase will concentrate on giving further insights on how you are progressing towards your goals, which has already begun with the statistics module.
