Research Strategy

For this request on English-speaking accelerated learning programs, the research team employed credible sources, including online learning platforms, industry reviews, and accelerated learning platforms like Cheetah learning and similar resources. We reviewed the best-accelerated learning programs in the US (especially corporate training programs for executives that are offered for small groups of about 5 to 10 participants) and also reviewed various resources to determine if any of the provided companies started as memory training companies and then later transitioned into accelerated learning. We could not uncover the three best corporate training programs for executives that are offered for small groups of about 5 to 10 participants. Alternatively, we have provided three corporate programs that teach how to acquire accelerated learning skills.

Many of the investigated platforms (including Cornerstone) did not reveal through their website or related resources if they started as memory training companies and then later transitioned into accelerated learning. We examined their resources for when they started giving memory training solutions or resources or accelerated learning solutions. Some companies do not disclose the full details of how they started. For example, HowNow reveals that the story of how it started "isn't straight-forward enough" to be summed up in a few lines. Many of the reviewed companies provide LMS platforms that seek to provide more efficient services making them accelerated learning platforms. We defined accelerated learning as programs that focus on improving mental performance, memory skills, or accelerating the learning process.
