• 10 October 2016Highlighting kanji components in mnemonics

    I'm considering adding colour highlighting of the kanji components (called "primitives" in Heisig's method) to the shared stories. There is research that supports highlighting text as a learning aid. On Kanji Koohii there are two scenarios in which highlighting could be beneficial: when you format your own story, and when you read shared stories.

    Currently there IS formatting for the kanji components, by surrounding the word with *asterisks*. I think with colour highlighting the stories that are formatted will stand out better in the list. This may also encourage the author in turn to think more about the naming of the character components in their own story.

    Please join the discussion on the Koohii FORUM. I'd love to get some additional input.
