Stackz is a flascard organizer. It helps you to keep the overview
over the words you are learning, even if there are several thousands of them.
To achieve this goal, the words are classified according to two fundamental
- known/unknown - known words are on the right, unknown
ones on the left.
- fresh/old - the color of the card indicates the time
without a positive test.
The known/unknown separation is a well accepted technique, it
has been widely used in the traditional flashcard approach where
paper flashcards are moved up and down the promotion levels. The
Stackz system goes one step further by also showing which cards
have not been looked at for a long time.
This basic scheme ist just one out of many schemes (Color Modes). The Repeat Advisor Color Mode for example gives active hints when it's time to repeat the words.
The Software Representation
The screenshot below shows how
Stackz visualizes the cards with their two attributes (promotion
level and color), and how a set of stacks can be selected to open
in a tool dialog (in this case the LearnDialog).
