What are Flashcards?
Flashcards are a commonly used method for learning simple facts. Before computers, they were pieces of paper with a question on one side and an answer on the back.
Flashcards are widely used as an effective memorization tool and utilize active recall to train the mind.
What is Spaced Repetition?
Spaced Repetition is a system for deciding how often a flashcard should be reviewed. The goal is typically to review a fact just before you are about to forget it.
Done properly, Spaced Repetition is a very efficient learning method and can greatly reduce the amount of effort required to memorize a large number of facts.
The world memory champion Dominic O'Brien uses a spaced repetition system based on review periods of 2 hours, 1 day, 1 week, 1 month and 3 months.1
MemShot is a simple, free and easy to use spaced repetition system to help you remember important facts.

Start learning with MemShot!
MemShot organises facts into learning sets - groups of facts you wish to remember - but to start with, you won't have any learning sets.
Create a learning set
There are two ways to create a new learning set:
- Add a new item with "Create a new set..." selected; or
- Find an existing learning set that someone else has shared.
- Click on "Practice" or "Practice All". Easy!
Before you can start learning, you need some facts to learn.
- Go to the "Add new item" box.
- Enter a "question" and an "answer"
- If you are creating a new learning set, give the set a descriptive name.
- "Add reverse as a question as well" - do you want to be asked the "answer" as a question?
- "Question Style" - do you want to be required to type in the correct answer, or will you just tell the system if you remembered the answer?
If you want to add a large number of items, use file upload. The file must be in CSV format. Most spreadsheet software can export as CSV.
- The first column must be the question, the second column must be the answer.
