Abstract

Bulimic learning describes a strategy for learning with the goal of preparing for a test or an exam Students start learning the last days before an exam and usually forget most of the learned content soon after While this strategy is in most cases sufficient for achieving good grades or at least to pass a course, it undermines the goal of learning for future tasks and challenges This paper analyses the learning patterns of higher education students in a dual study program based on a survey and discusses ways to change their learning strategies to more sustainable ones It also discusses motivational factors and introduces mobile learning games as a promising vehicle for more sustaining learning strategies, such as Spaced Repetitions
