Linux Academy Flash Cards

Linux Academy Flash Cards

Are you studying for an exam and need a quick way to remind yourself of the essentials? Are you a furious note-taker that loves to organize? Do you prefer to quiz yourself with your own words because you know that writing questions is a great way to learn and understand? Introducing Linux Academy Flash Cards! We've expanded the Notes function of Linux Academy significantly. Each course will now feature the Create Deck option for convenient note-taking and studying.Once you create a deck, you can begin making flash cards. These flash cards will "live" within a course and act as your notes. However, notes are now double-sided, so that instead of having just the note itself, you have a way to quiz yourself in a manner that works for you.
