Anki is a program designed to help you remember facts (such as words and phrases in a foreign language) as easily, quickly and efficiently as possible. To do this, it tracks how well you remember each fact, and uses that information to optimally schedule review times.

Besides text, it supports sounds, images and rendering TeX snippets in the cards. It can synchronize card decks to a server so that you can review the deck on other computers, a web interface or mobile devices, for which versions of Anki are also available. Complete card decks offered by other users can be downloaded the same way.

Anki is extensible with plugins which can be downloaded and installed from the menu. While Anki can be used for studying anything, plugins are available with special features designed to make studying Japanese and English easier: integrated dictionary lookups, missing kanji reports, and more.

Vym es un programa para hacer mapas mentales. Es útil para organizar pensamientos y hacer un trabajo estructurado. Además de eso, tiene un montón de enlaces rápidos útiles.

Un diagrama de ideas tiene colores y una imagen en el centro de una diagrama radial que representa conexiones semánticas o de otro tipo entre partes del material aprendido. Por ejemplo, puede ilustrar gráficamente la estructura del esbozo de una tesis, una planificación de proyecto, o las instituciones gubernamentales en un estado. Los diagramas de ideas tienen algunas aplicaciones en situaciones personales, familiares, educativas y de negocios. Las posibilidades incluyen tomar notas, tormentas de ideas, resumir, revisar y clarificar pensamientos en general.

Freeplane is a free and open source software application that supports thinking, sharing information and getting things done at work, in school and at home. The core of the software is tools for mind mapping (also known as concept mapping or information mapping) and using mapped information.

Occupying the middle ground between an editor and a diagramming tool, Freeplane allows the user to add content as quickly and naturally as they would in a text editor, yet producing structured content that can be manipulated as easily as a diagram.

Features include ordering ideas in nodes and freely positionable nodes, connecting nodes, automatic/conditional styles, scripting, add-ons, LaTeX, search/filtering, different export features, printing, password protection of nodes/maps and more.

See http://freeplane.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page for a full list of applications and features.
