This is also known as Spaced repetition.
I don't think there is currently a tool in Moodle that does this.
It would be a natural development to add this as an option in the Question practice add-on. I don't know if Gareth has an plans along those lines.
In the mean time, the best option is just to make a number of small quizzes for your students to practice on.
I just wish the students can review the content they learned regularly according to the Ebbinghaus curve. It will be helpful if they can get informed by Moodle. I wish the system can do it in the future.
It is also called spaced practice and deliberate practice.
I saw this last week, but I have not looked at it, and I was unclear if this was commercial, it probably is.
Note I have no affiliation at all with learning pool or Adapt.
- The "Spaced Practice" e-book I have just downloaded an looks good, I'd put it here but it is 367kB, too big for here.
- See the Deliberate practice section here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Practice_(learning_method)

I have been investigating the lesson to see if it will help with this, but I have not had any real response back from the forum yet. I am interested in Totally Mobile options where I can send an email "Do this today" and have some quick practice come up.
I had an interesting response on the Adapt forum:
You've not seen drag and drop yet mostly because of touch devices. Dragging vertically and touch scrolling together is a nightmare. Drag left and right is OK though. Food for a designer perhaps? Desktop only with a mobile fallback? Who knows?
I've posted today in the mobile forum here on Moodle.org.
It is very easy to say.
Very hard to do/implement online. AFAIK
If I'm the new Gareth , I think it is a fine idea. However I am focussed on getting a nice version into the plugins database at the moment and am in the final stages of polishing.
There are lots of options available. If you are looking at the classic flashcards, then I'd suggest you look at the Poodll plugin, but for the most part this can be achieved with standard tools which make activities available at certain times, or create deadlines which mean that the activities have to be done within a given time span. You'll need to get comfortable with using access restrictions to achieve this. There are quite a few threads about timing in the forums, so I'd suggest having a look at them and then get back to us when you have any other questions.
All the best
I believe that the Poodll plugin is worth experimenting. And the timing method you mentioned is also effective which I should study carefully. I am sure I can solve my problem soon.
