  • FSRS: A modern, efficient spaced repetition algorithm
    I wonder if there is plan for this to land in Mnemosyne[1]. I prefer Mnemosyne over Anki because I can self-host the web-sync server. 1: - Source: Hacker News / 4 months ago
  • How do you retain information when self learning?
    I have tried using spaced repetition with Mnemosyne for math, specifically for learning Category Theory. It did help. Spaced repetition seems to work better for me if the answers to the questions are short (like learning Spanish vocabulary). When doing math, you often want to remember an entire definition, which might be too long to use spaced repetition flash cards effectively. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Knot very smart
    I've had good luck with spaced repetition using mnemosyne for lots of other stuff but haven't tried it for knots yet. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Hi, next week I have my first day as a software dev, and I'm kinda nervous.
    Also, take the time to learn everyone's name and face. I use a flash card program like Mnemosyne to copy people's photos from the corporate directory. Learn them all the first week or even in the first couple of days. Source: about 1 year ago
  • McMillan or PDG Promote?
    Https:// use this, make every relevant term a flash card and event a flash card. It takes forever to populate, but you learn on entry in addition to “study”. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Best ways to study for initial CFI oral.
    Anki is a spaced-repetition system based on Mnemosyne for studying flashcards in such a way that optimally loads facts into and maintains them in long-term memory. During daily study sessions, Anki shows flash cards, and you self-rate your ability to recall each correct answer. You review easier cards on a maintenance schedule, and Anki schedules the ones you have trouble with more frequently. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Excited about Anki's Future Direction
    Some time ago I saw several posts about a machine learning based scheduler for Anki. There is another project known as mnemosyne that conducts research into long term learning. Do you want similar changes to Anki's scheduler? Source: about 2 years ago
  • Options other than Anki?
    I use Mnemosyne. It is free, it uses a scheduling algorithm that is similar to Anki, it supports HTML in the cards (with audio, video, kanji/kana, furigana, etc.), and it can import Anki decks. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Quizlet Alternatives?
    Maybe mnemosyne. You’re probably looking for someone who uses something like this but I just looked at a few from the Awesome site and this one looks nice. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Motivation from an average student and what I learned after 6 years
    So I registered to sit for level 3 in May of 2020 (HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA) and began studying in November of 2019 just because I knew that I was kind of slow and that it would take me longer to understand most concepts compared to the above average folk and those that just seem to get it after reading through the content once (envy you!). I studied 2 hours everyday up until mid March when CFAI postponed the exams to... Source: almost 3 years ago
  • Hello, world! I'm Al Sweigart, author of "Automate the Boring Stuff with Python" and several other programming books. AMA!
    3) I like to write down notes on paper. I usually fold a paper in half so I have two long columns. Writing forces me to slow down and actually think about what I'm studying. I don't really tend to look at the papers later. Flash cards help (there's a nice open source program called Mnemosyne to help with that. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • If Anki/spaced repetition is the evidence-based way to retain material rather than learning it and promptly forgetting it, why do modern-day lectures not come with corresponding Anki decks?
    There is and many pet WEB based SRS here. Anki could be considered better because of Android client / offline mode. But it is not the definite superior product. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • 2 different Anki logos (2"a" arrow and blue star) are these different
    Or use a competing project like Source: almost 3 years ago
  • Flashcard App
    Mnemosyne Project is an open-source flash card program that I’ve used for some things. It’s very easy to use and you can add multiple tags to the cards allowing filtering and focusing of study efforts. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • Another also has a terrible memory?
    Yeah, those were difficult for me as well, esp. When we had to know a poem by heart. Luckily later I found out about Anki and later about Menmosyne - spaced repetition works great and not only in the school/university environment. Source: about 3 years ago
