Built by Chris Trudeau and Robert Deiss, Flashkit was created as a long-term learning platform centered around memorization via an innovative flashcard system. Fed up with trying to organize his 800+ German flashcards into piles based on how well he knew them, Chris wanted a better method.
The goal was to create a platform where the user could say: "Give me 200 flashcards, 25% drawn from the cards I get wrong the most, 25% drawn from the cards I review least often, 25% from those it's been the longest since I've reviewed, and 25% at random." Using this method, someone with the will to learn could not only introduce new material, but ensure that previously learned material is never neglected to the point of being forgotten. We also wanted to focus on large, all-encompassing flashcard collections. Most of the sites we looked at contained flashcard decks like "Vocabulary from chapter 11 review, 15 cards" from some obscure book, which didn't fit with our long-term learning vision.
We hope you find our platform as useful as we do, and don't be afraid to let us know if there's something you think can be improved!.
