After quite a break (~2 years) we’ve finally decided to retire the old OpenCards extension for OpenOffice Impress and to create a new more user-friendly, speedy and elegant successor. As OpenOffice did not develop as we were hoping when starting the OpenCards project, we’ve now made a cut and rebuilt OpenCards to use PowerPoint ppt-files as flashcard sets.
So it is with great pleasure for us to announce OpenCards v2.0, which is a free flashcard learning software for PowerPoint ppt-files. The basic idea of OpenCards is to use PowerPoint presentations 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. It ships with tons of cool features and runs on all major operating systems.
Feel welcome to share and discuss your experience with OpenCards, suggestions, problems or ideas about flashcard learning in general with other OpenCards-users in our discussion forums.
