This module provide students a way of fast memoizing list of "things". This is a typical indexing exercise, where a map of coupled things should be learned and retained. We say "thing" because either key or value could be any related pair of text, images or sounds.
This module implements a full Leitner system to mechanically support the memoization process of the relationships. The couples to be learned are first attached to a deck of cards. These are initially considered as difficult to learn. The teacher can choose a learning curve using 2, 3 or 4 decks. 4 decks should be used for large set of definitions. When the student fails answering a card, he will tell it and let the card stay in the same deck. If he has the correct answer, he will ask for passing the card to the second deck, so considered as less difficult to learn. The process is repeated for all decks till the last one where card will remain. The decks are triggered so the student knows which he should review. Difficult cards will trigger more often thant trivial cards. Trigger delays are adjustable.
When a student do not apply for reviewing decks, cards may downgrade automatically to an higher difficulty deck.
The module allows also a free use of the cards, enabled by module configuration. The module is customisable graphically using a teacher defined CSS and image set.
Thanks to Tomas Muras, we have an updated version of Flashcard for Moodle 2.0 now !
