The website betterexplained.com uses the ADEPT method to explain concepts in a very effective way:

  • Analogy: Tell me what it’s like so that I can anchor it within my current understanding.
  • Diagram: Help me visualize it to engage that part of the brain.
  • Example: Allow me to experience it (show don’t tell).
  • Plain English: Describe it with everyday words.
  • Technical definition: Discuss the formal details.
