As a learning aid for learners to review & practice vocabulary and phrase/sentence patterns, we have developed multimedia flashcards using ANKI, a free smart multimedia flashcards program
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.
ANKI is available in many platforms. Download ANKI (free) at: http://ankisrs.net/
