Dr. Ed Sim is a professor extraordinaire! His online courses are saturated with student views, comments, discussion insights, and participation. Dr. Sim credits Nelson & Narens’ (1990) metamemory* framework for the extensive interactivity and effective learning activities in his online classes.  Thank you, Dr. Sim, for sharing the following learning artifact.

Definition: Metamemory or Socratic awareness, a type of metacognition, is both the introspective knowledge of one’s own memory capabilities (and strategies that can aid memory) and the processes involved in memory self-monitoring. This self-awareness of memory has important implications for how people learn and use memories.
