anki - flexible, intelligent flashcard program
is a program designed to help you remember facts (such as words and
phrases in a foreign language) as easily, quickly and efficiently as possible.
To do this, it tracks how well you remember each fact, and uses that
information to optimally schedule review times. With a minimal amount of
effort, you can greatly increase the amount of material you remember, making
study more productive, and more fun.
Anki is based on a theory called spaced repetition
. In simple terms, it
means that each time you review some material, you should wait longer than
last time before reviewing it again. This maximizes the time spent studying
difficult material and minimizes the time spent reviewing things you already
know. The concept is simple, but the vast majority of memory trainers and
flashcard programs out there either avoid the concept all together, or
implement inflexible and suboptimal methods that were originally designed for
pen and paper.
