JSFlash - JavaScript Flashcards

Platform: Web; JavaScript; CSS
Recent Browser
Freeware; Open Source

JSFlash is a JavaScript based web-application for practicing flashcards. Its features include support for 2, 3, or 4 fields of information on the card, the ability to control which fields are visible on the "front" and "back" of the flashcards, self-scoring, the option to display the last flashed entry, and a feature allowing continual review until all entries have been flashed and marked "correct".

The script will be an integral part of future releases OWLS software and will serve as the engine for a web-based version of the award-winning Flashcard Wizard. This web based version of Flashcard Wizard (JavaScript and PHP), including its advanced "interval study" features is being developed concurrently with Flashcard Wizard 2.0 for Mac OS X.

The script can be used in a number of ways. First, students can directly edit the script to flash the entries they wish to practice. Alternatively, the script can become part of more advanced software packages (such as OWLS).

Keep a watch on this page for demos of the script and a section for practicing flashcards from the Fool's Workshop set library directly on the page.
