I am struggling here. I am a college professor training commercial pilots and instructor pilots. The amount of knowledge that must be learned is enormous as you might suspect.
I’m torn about using anki instead of another app such as quizlet. Students are already sold on the idea of flashcards as a way of learning. But there seems to be a learning curve for anki. I understand that it is probably better because of the space repetition. But if a student finds anki too complicated to just pick up and start using then they won’t.
And the hundreds of hours I’m going to spend to create the decks will be for nothing. So from a effort/reward point of view is quizlet better or am I missing something here?
Is there a simple way to use anki that most students won’t have to struggle to use. Learning aircraft systems is hard enough. Having to learn a software package just to get a fancy flash card app will cause many students to just write their own cards.
