When Time is Money. Using RapidReader to Review Contracts and Add Annotation Markup

Whether you're in negotiations or reviewing legacy documents to "come up to speed" for a new client , contracts and business agreements can be very time consuming to read and annotate. The specificity required in these agreements means that they can run to hundreds of pages. The importance of the document language accurately reflecting the mutual understanding of terms has significant ramifications for your business. Consequently, reviewing and revising from a paper copy or even a word processor document is a laborious and exacting process.

Now, with any electronic document, you can use the power of the computer to accelerate your reading and annotating with RapidReader. You can create "User-Notes" and Highlited text to record your changes and then easily embed them in the original document or copy.

For Teachers: Lighten the Load. Save Time Grading Essays and Papers using RapidReader

One of the most time intensive tasks that a teacher faces is grading essay papers. Now there's a new tool available to help.

At RapidReader speeds, it's amazing how obvious poor writing or factual errors become. At several hundred words per minute, awkward language, grammatical errors and even "filler and padding" stand out in high relief as a result of the flow of language with the RapidReader "speech mimic" algorithm.

As education moves toward requiring that papers be submitted in electronic form, the job of grading actually becomes more difficult for the teacher. The teacher has two choices, slower reading speed on the computer screen or printing out the document and dealing with stacks of paper. RapidReader dramatically enhances the inherent efficiency of electronic documents by delivering the power of the computer to accelerate reading and streamline the grading process. RapidReader is a powerful time saver, reducing review and per paper grading time to a fraction.

You can also communicate your comments to the student with RR's markup capabilities like User-Notes and Highlites.

Finally, with RapidReader there's a way that being in the electronic domain delivers the teacher the assistance, speed and efficiency that the medium promises.

You can download a sample of a graded paper in RapidReader below

 
 
To read, grade and add comments to a student paper  
1) Open the electronic paper in RapidReader (see help files for instructions for the best method for you)
2)
Save the paper as a RapidReader (.r2d) file.
3) Make any comments with User-Notes or Highlite text
  Then you have two choices:
4) If the student has RapidReader on their machine, you can save the document as a RapidReader file (.r2d) and return it.
  OR
5) You can save your Notes and Highlited text as a separate file (see Using Notes and Highliter)
6) Copy and Paste them directly into the students original electronic paper.

Better Scores on Standardized Tests. Accelerated Vocabulary "Flashcards" for Prep

One of the principle requirements of any kind of learning is practice. When it comes to knowledge building, the psychophysiology of learning tells us that there is simply no substitute for repeated exposure to the information we want to remember. This is particularly true of vocabulary building and other rote learning tasks. That's why "flash cards" were invented in the first place. To create a time efficient  tool for practice. RapidReader uses computer assisted technology to build on this premise. When you're able to sit back and read at several hundred words per minute, multiple exposures to words becomes easy and learning is accelerated.

Using RapidReader for vocabulary review, a student can easily be exposed to each entry three or more times in the time it previously took to read it once. This of course means shorter study time. In addition to the benefit of multiple exposures in less time, the speed of the dynamic display helps the student to maintain focused attention which in turn increases retention. With RapidReader you can create a powerful immersive experience to encourage retention in far less time than with traditional materials.

Below you'll find an optimized format for creating RapidReview for vocabulary. With it you can create a lesson which will give the student multiple exposures in one sitting.

You can download the sample RapidReview vocabulary "flashcards" for you to use as a model

 
 
To create your own accelerated Vocabulary RapidReview lesson:  
1) In a standard MS Word document create an entry in the following sequence*.
  Word
Word
Word
Use in a sentence
Definition
Definition
Use in a new sentence
Use in a new sentence
Word
Definition
Word
Word
Word
2)
Using the above format for each word, create a sequence of however many vocabulary words you wish to contain in a practice session.
3) Once you have the sequence and order of the vocabulary lesson completed, Select / Copy the entire group to create a duplicate.
4) Then Paste it in the document after the first initial group. Repeat to form 3 repetitions of the entire group. Save the document
5) Open the document in RapidReader. (See help files for instructions)
6) Once in RapidReader, Highlite each vocabulary word each place it appears to act as a reinforcer
7) Save the document as a RapidReader file (.r2d) to preserve your Highlites
NOTE: * You may want to maintain a master list of these words as you build them from which to create various "mix and match" lessons.

More One-on-One Time with Students. Create Engaging Accelerated Self-Study Subject Lessons from the Web in RapidReader

In the class room, the challenge for every teacher is to not only convey the required information but equally importantly, provide context and meaning for the student. In this day of standardized testing, oversight and compliance, it is becoming increasingly difficult for teachers to meet the administrative demands and still provide the individual attention that students want and need.  Historically, when time and resource demands on people became overwhelming, technology has emerged to help. RapidReader is the kind of assistive technology that can provide a tool to give the student and the teacher more ways to streamline the use of the Internet and other electronic resources to accelerate core learning objectives and make time in the class room more productive.

One way to use RapidReader to assist both teaching and learning is to provide a means of accelerating the learning of "core information" in advance of classroom discussion. For instance an historical narrative with names, places, dates and events is primary to understanding the deeper issues of the political or social context of the subject.  RapidReader excels at this kind of transfer of factual information in a fast, engaging manner to prepare the student for deeper discussion in the class room.

You can easily create a lesson from web pages you've found or from electronic documents already in your curriculum materials

You can customize the lesson and communicate with the student with your own User-Notes as well as Highlite passages of importance. 

In the sample you'll see the use of Notes and Highlites as reinforcers.

Your Notes and Highlites can themselves be saved as a separate text file for them to use as a summary or test review. This is a powerful tool for preparation for standardized testing.  

Below are instructions on how you can easily and quickly build RapidReader lessons for accelerated knowledge building.

You can download the sample lesson in RapidReader with Notes and Highlites below

Create Customized RapidReader "Teachers Editions" of Classic Books for Reading Assignments
The RapidReader Free Library

Visit the RapidReader Free Library

A collection of hundreds of Free classic books and and study materials all formatted for use with RapidReader Software.
 

There are thousands of e-book texts available on line. At the RapidReader Free Library you'll find the classic books most frequently assigned as required reading. Collections of great novels by Dickens, Twain, Bronte, Flaubert as well as non fiction, philosophy, history and a collection of sacred texts. There are also collections of historical or political reference, religious works, scientific research and children's reading to name a few.  These engaging editions are ready for you to add study notes, highlited text and more to accelerate learning.

Until now these electronic books offered a challenge to  the reader. The process of reading on-screen is comparatively slow, uncomfortable and laborious. This in turn has blunted the usability of the tremendous wealth of online materials. RapidReader changes all that by using the power of the computer to assist in reading on screen. By offering the option of the RapidReader mode in addition to the conventional reading experience within one software product, the reader now gets the choice of how they wish to read electronic books.

Build your own study edition for your students
For the teacher, the markup features contained within RapidReader allow for building a customized lesson plan within the book itself. With the download of an e-book the teacher can create a customized RapidReader Edition which focuses the approach to the material to be  consistent with the purpose of the class. The teacher can reach the student directly with commentary in User-Notes attached to pages and Highlite text for emphasis.  Other material such as "food for thought" questions or even quizzes can be included right in the text.

You can download a sample chapter of a "Teachers Edition" e-book in RapidReader below

 
 

NOTE: You will sometimes find a book or document that was originally scanned from a paper copy by an OCR (optical character recognition) program. In some cases, the original document was formatted to put a "hard carriage return" at the end of each line. This is a throw back to the old days of typewriters. Some of the prominent free electronic book initiatives available on the Internet have adopted this protocol and usually will save the book as a text file .txt. Because RapidReader automatically interprets the construction of the text in a document to create the rhythm of human speech from the text flow, this hard carriage return will cause a disruption of the rhythm. If that is the case, there may be an HTML version of the book available online which will have a "wrap" format. This will eliminate the problem in RapidReader.

 
To create your custom "Teachers Edition" in RapidReader:  
1) Download the book in either text or .doc format.
2)
Drag the file onto the RapidReader desktop Icon to open it in RR (for more information about opening files please see help files)
  OR
3) To use an HTML (web) book:  You can open the book in RapidReader directly from the toolbar of the IE browser.
NOTE: If you are using other browsers please see troubleshooting in the Help Files
4) Once you have the text in RapidReader. Add your Notes and Highlites to the text.
5) To save your book with your User-Notes and Highlites Click on FILE > SAVE AS on the RR ParagraphView menubar
  TIP: You may wish to divide the book into separate lessons perhaps based on chapter. To do this, create separate text files for each lesson and then convert each one to RapidReader format as a separate .r2d file.

Don't Let Little Errors Cost You a Grade. RapidReader for Ultra-Efficient Proofreading of Essays and Book Reports

At RapidReader speeds, it's amazing how obvious poor writing or factual errors become. At several hundred words per minute, awkward language, grammatical errors and even "filler and padding" stand out in high relief as a result of the flow of language with the RapidReader "speech mimic" algorithm.

This is the kind of proofreading that a simple spell checker or grammar checker can't do and it's essential to improving your grade. Good editing means actually re-reading the document, editing it for content and readability to best communicate your knowledge to your teacher or professor. RapidReader can cut the proofreading time to a fraction while streamlining the editing process. In fact there is a feature called "Return to Previous App" right on the RapidReader toolbar to make going back and forth between proofreading in RapidReader and editing in your Word processor.

You can download an example of proofreading in RapidReader below

 
 
To Proofread in RapidReader and Edit in the original document:  
1) Open the document from MS Word (or other) in RapidReader (see help file for the best method for you)
2)
As you RapidRead the document, you can record the changes you want to make to the text of the original with User-Notes and Highliter.
3) Save your Notes and Highlites as a separate text file to copy / paste into the original (see help file for methods)
4) On the RapidReader ParagraphView Toolbar Click "Return to Previous App" Icon. This will bring your original document to the front
5) Make changes or paste the Notes and Highlites saved from your RapidReader file into the original. Save your changes in the original.
6) Re-open the document in RapidReader to continue proofreading and see the changes.
7) Repeat as necessary to fine tune your paper.
IMPORTANT NOTE: When you reopen your document into RapidReader to review your changes, it generates a completely new version. This will REMOVE all Notes and Highlites you've previously made. So it's important that you save ALL your markup as text files before you open the revised document in RapidReader to review changes .
