Get'em on paper

Context matters in the learning process. (I have often experienced that in a "real life" situation I am unable to recall knowledge that I already know quite well an Spaced Rep. Learning situation).

Especially for material that is hard to learn I have sometines turned to printing them out on paper, train the old fashioned way for some time (using the physical flash-cards). For me it works :-)

Want: Possibility to make selection of cards and then: "Export to paper-based flash-cards"

    If you're already working on changing the export feature, how about adding a field for tags? It's a lot more efficient to make changes in a word-processor - removing the _missing for unfound audio, changing the order of cards, adding formatting - but this involves, as far as I can see, losing the tag structure. (Since I don't use Mnem for the spaced-repetition feature much, I don't mind losing that information, but for those who do, why not simply allow a selection of fields?)

    Henrik, if there is no context in the card, how will you get the Context if you print a card ?

    And if THERE IS a context, why would Paper have a better effect than SRS ?

    Also when you say "in a "real life" situation I am unable to recall knowledge" , is it a Foreign language, native L or what ?

    How do your cards look like ? I'm very curious - I'd like more details in order to learn from your experience and exchange ideas.

    I think after the txt file export is implemented, you could go to quizlet.com and import it there. Their website has a nice paper flashcard maker with a few different options.

    If we wanted to do this in mnemosyne, I believe it might be possible to do it via a spreadsheet of some kind (like excel)?
