Mnemosyne description
Mnemosyne is a traditional flash card program to help you memorize question/answer pairs. The Mnemosyne Project has two aspects:

It's a sophisticated free flash-card tool which optimises your learning process.
It's a research project into the nature of long-term memory.

Efficient learning

The Mnemosyne software resembles a traditional flash-card program to help you memorise question/answer pairs, but with an important twist: it uses a sophisticated algorithm to schedule the best time for a card to come up for review. Difficult cards that you tend to forget quickly will be scheduled more often, while Mnemosyne won't waste your time on things you remember well.

Mnemosyne runs on Linux, Mac OSX and Windows.

Memory research

While you use the software, detailed statistics can be kept on your learning process. If you want, these logs can be uploaded in a transparent and anonymous way to a central server for analysis.

This data will be valuable to study the behaviour of our memory over a very long time period. As an additional benefit, the results will be used to improve the scheduling algorithms behind the software even further.

Here are some key features of "Mnemosyne":

· Efficient scheduling algorithm, so you don't waste time on things you know well
· Support for languages using different scripts through unicode
· Support for pictures, sounds and html formatting
· Can be integrated with LaTeX to display mathematical formulas
· Support for three-sided cards, e.g. foreign words where you are interested in written form, pronunciation and translation
· Can be run from a USB key
· Can display some basis statistical info on your learning process
· Keeps a detailed record of your entire learning process for analysis
· Your cards can be organised in categories, which can be activated and disactivated to control your learning process
· Clean, deceptively simple user interface, yet fully customisable for advanced users through configuration files and plugins. the Mnemosyne Project | The Mnemosyne Project.
