Knowledge is powerful, and finding effective ways to study further and increase that knowledge is definitely worthwhile. Some people find it easier than others to get new information to 'stick' in their mental databases, but for those who may find it a little more challenging, helpful tools are a welcome solution. ZOWi is one of these learning tools. It's a platform and app that provides users with a convenient way to engage in oral questions and answers. By providing the ZOWi API, the company also makes it possible for developers to access content for a vast amount of questions and answers in real time.
