How to Export Flashcards to Anki from Scholarly

Scholarly Guide

Scholarly offers a seamless way to enhance your learning experience by allowing you to create personalized flashcards and then export them to Anki, a popular flashcard application that helps you study using active recall. This blog post will guide you through each step of the process, from creating flashcards in Scholarly to importing them into Anki.

Step 1: Create Your Flashcards in Scholarly

You can start by creating a new set of flashcards in Scholarly. There are two ways to populate your flashcards:

Manual Entry

You can manually type in the questions and answers for each flashcard. If you're not sure about the answer, Scholarly offers a helpful feature where you can type the question and then press the Tab key in the answer box to generate an answer using AI.

AI PDF to Flashcards

For a more automated approach, you can upload a PDF document, and Scholarly’s AI will analyze the text and suggest flashcards based on the content. This is particularly useful for converting lecture notes or textbook chapters into study aids.

Step 2: Adding Cards to Your Deck

Once you have your flashcards ready, you can review and edit them to ensure that the information is accurate and tailored to your study needs. You can add additional details or modify the AI-generated content as needed.

Step 3: Export to Anki

When your flashcards are set up and ready to go, look for the options button next to your flashcard deck in Scholarly. Click on this, and you will see an option to "Export to Anki." Selecting this will prompt Scholarly to create a .csv file of your deck.

Step 4: Import the .csv File into Anki

After downloading the .csv file from Scholarly, you can import it into Anki with the following steps:

  1. Open Anki: Start Anki and select the deck you want to add your cards to or create a new deck.
  2. Import File: Go to the main menu, choose "Import File," and select the .csv file you downloaded from Scholarly.
  3. Configure Fields: Ensure that the fields in the .csv file match the fields in your Anki cards. This typically involves mapping the front and back of your flashcards to the question and answer fields in Anki.
  4. Complete Import: Follow the prompts to complete the import. Anki will notify you once the import is successful, and your new cards will be added to your selected deck.

By following these steps, you can efficiently transfer your Scholarly flashcards to Anki, taking advantage of Anki’s powerful spaced repetition system to optimize your study sessions. This method not only saves time but also enhances your learning process by allowing you to study across different platforms with ease. Happy studying!
