Today I discovered Anki.. an extremely helpful open source program for flashcards. Anki is available for Windows, Mac, Linux, FreeBSD, and the iPhone.. You can even run the program off of a flash drive. Share a computer? Only have access to public computers? Not to worry, you can also run the program directly off of the website. Anki allows you to sync your decks of review cards across multiple computers.. or split up a deck between multiple students. The program comes preloaded with thousands of review cards arranged by subject matter, or you could upload your own. Overall Anki is a necessary tool for any students trying to; learn a language, practice for medical or judicial reviews, learn an instrument, or any matter that requires intense amounts of memorization.


  1. I use this for some of my students. Great program.

  2. I'm still not sure what this does, but I'm a language student and if you say it's helpful, then I will check it out.

    thanks for the post!
