What do you look at first on a webpage? Colors, shapes, bullet points, BOLD LETTERS? Here’s the psychology behind what draws your eyes towards the more obnoxious thing on the page, it’s yelling out at you. Utilize this (an annoyance to some) to retain more information for class.

That way when you review the information later the more important things stay in your mind for a later application.
