We weren't exactly sure how to categorize Anki, but in the end, it ended up in our Education category. Anki is essentially a flash card system which provides a few advanced features which you wouldn't find with its typical analog version.
The way Anki works is to train your memory by using repetition. It's an index car system which asks a question on one hand, then provides the answer on the other. It seems to be designed especially for learning foreign languages such as Japanese or Chinese, based on the comprehensiveness of the included courses.
Many of the options of Anki are customizable and learning at your own pace is one of the main options, allowing you to configure the speed at which you are pushed to your limit.
In conclusion, Anki is a completely free flashcard system which allows you to learn at your own pace. It isn't the most advanced program in its category, but it certainly is useful and recommended for anybody wishing to try out the flashcard technique of learning.Anki features and highlights:
