ANKI is an intelligent multimedia flashcard program. There are two simple concepts behind Anki:
- Active recall testing – actively stimulate memory during the learning process by answering questions about the materials being learned.
- Spaced repetition - a learning technique that incorporates increasing intervals of time between subsequent review of previously learned vocabulary in order to exploit the psychological spacing effect.
