Editors' Review

+

WinFlash Educator is a needlessly complicated study aid program. It won't save you time over creating flash cards with plain index cards and a set of markers, and the added functionality it offers over the paper versions isn't enough to justify spending the time using this overly complex program.

WinFlash Educator has a Help file, demos, and a tutorial, which is a good thing, because it is nearly impossible to figure out how to use the program without them. The unappealing interface isn't intuitive, and once you get to the right screen to begin creating your questions, answers, and hints, it's so jam-packed with buttons that what should be a simple process requires extensive research with the Help file. We ended up wishing that more effort had been put into making the program easy to use instead of creating so many demos to try and explain it. And once we had our study deck created, we just weren't all that impressed with the results. The question and answer window had a basic layout that didn't look very professional.

There's a 30-day or 30-use limit with the demo version, but most won't need more than a few sessions to see that WinFlash Educator doesn't live up to the publisher's claims of its being a "leading-edge learning tool." We suggest you look for a more user-friendly tool to help yourself or your students study.

"I tell every student to get this program!"

Pros

I use this for nearly every difficult school class I take (I am an adult student). I recommend this to everyone who has things to memorize and/or get crammed into your brain.

This program is flexible, allows you to either use plain text electronic flash cards, electronic flash cards with illustrations and sound, printed paper flash cards with or without pictures and more. It allows you to make new card decks from portions of existing decks. It has a lot of great keyboard shortcuts that makes entering data faster and easier. It has a copy feature where you can add on to an existing card if something only changes a little bit. It keeps track of how much you are remembering and will do so in many different ways depending on your personal preferences. Extremely customizable.

Cons

There are some keyboard shortcuts that are not there but should be - such as one for the copy card feature - as it stands one must manually click on copy card and then where in the deck the new card will go. Can't think of them offhand but I know theres a few other keyboard shortcuts I've wished for over time.

Also, I wish there was an easier way to import data into cards rather than just regular cut and paste. Not sure what that way would be but it seems there could be an easier way when you have your raw data already in electronic format.
