Active recall and spaced repetition with flash cards is an old and proven technique for effective learning. The goal of MemoMash is to offer a simple yet powerful implementation in pure web app form. This allows you to start learning without installing anything on your computer or other device. An even greater benefit is the fact that you automatically have all your cards available wherever, whenever you have an Internet access, regardless of the device you use.
In MemoMash, you create cards in a deck. Each card should have one short question with a short answer. Once you have entered a card and marked it as learned, MemoMash will decide when you need to revise that piece of information. When a learned card is revised, you grade your answer (how easy it was to recall the piece of information) and MemoMash adjusts the recall interval accordingly. More Info »
The goal is that once you have entered a piece of information in MemoMash, you can stop worrying whether you will remember it or not. MemoMash makes sure you'll rehearse when needed - i.e. not too soon, but just at optimal intervals, before you would forget. It takes much less effort to rehearse something you still remember than to learn it again.
You'll have to use less time studying but the learning results will improve!
