OpenCards is a free award-winning flashcard learning software. The basic idea of OpenCards is to use PowerPoint presentations (*.ppt) as flashcard sets. Thereby, slide-titles are considered as questions and the slide contents as their answers. Based on state-of-the-art memorization and scheduling algorithms OpenCards will help you to learn any set of flashcards.


  • is easy to use: Just create flashcards as you’re used to create PowerPoint slides
  • allows for efficient memorization of vocabulary, pictures (faces, geography, mushrooms), sounds (birdsongs, intervals, chords), and all other kinds of factual knowledge (exams, phone numbers, etc. etc.)
  • allows to learn any Powerpoint-file as flashcard-set without conversion
  • runs on every major operating system and is free and OpenSource
  • will reduce your memorization efforts by implementing state-of-the-art methods for spaced repetition
