CHUNK

What is a Chunk?

For our website: "Chunks" are collections of educational resources (articles, videos, lectures, etc). Each chunk should be the smallest possible collection of materials necessary to help a person understand a particular topic.

In academic literature: "What is a chunk? When you first look at a brand new concept it sometimes doesn't make much sense, as shown by the jumbled puzzle pieces here. Chunking is the mental leap that helps you unite bits of information together through meaning. The new logical whole makes the chunk easier to remember, and also makes it easier to fit the chunk into the larger picture of what you're learning." - Dr. Barbara Oakley, University of California, San Diego
