You group your studying contents in subjects and lessons. Every lesson consists of several indexes cards. Every card contains a question and the necessary answer. This can be a vocabulary in two languages or any fact, e.g. highest mountain on earth is Mount Everest, 8848 m.

Flashcards: Question&Answer can be formatted and pictures and advice can be added for better memorization. Texts can be read aloud.
You can manage subjects, lessons and cards, that is, add, rename and delete them.
Creating and importing lessons
Lessons are the most important area of studying content. The TeachingMachine uses the widespread CSV format for import and export, and office software for external creating, so that you can also edit lessons electronically in the long term. This makes it easy to exchange lessons with friends and many vocabulary lists in CSV format are already available on the internet.
With the TeachingMachine you use two learning methods.
To prepare for an facing exam, select short-term studying.
Memorize the studying content quickly at first.
Then check your knowledge with the optimized system of a flashcard.
To keep studying content for the long-term, select the long-term studying. According to scientific findings, the repetition rate depends on your learning progress. The facts to be repeated are automatically selected daily. The learning time is several months. After that, the facts are anchored in your long-term memory.
To shorten the learning time, difficult words or facts can also be repeated more often on the same day. Difficult words are automatically recognized or can be specified by you.
If you want to learn not only difficult words but whole lessons faster, you can also use the short-term studying with the studying variant check at the same time. If long-term studying takes place on the same day after short-term studying, this will be considered.
With these settings you can configure and change basic functions:
- Number of boxes of the flashcards
- Portrait and landscape controls

- Language settings
- Orientation of the screen
