I’m new to this forum but I think a lot of you might find incremental reading interesting. It’s hard to summarize well (thus I recommend you watch this video on it, SuperMemo for Wizards) but it’s basically systematized learning that makes use of spaced repetition:
- import learning material
- application generates a queue of your learning material
- go through queue, be presented with material and do processing
-when you find something interesting, make an extract
-if your extract is short, maybe rewrite it or make a cloze deletion to generate an SRS flashcard
- move on to next material in queue when you’re bored or finished processing the material
There are some parts I haven’t gone into like priority but this is the basics. I’ve found it quite useful and have at least 1,000-5,000 articles imported (though I obviously haven’t finished processing all of it).
It completely offloads management of learning material beyond assigning priorities (which isn’t hard) letting you vastly increase the amount of material you can manageably go through.
Because it makes use of spaced repetition, you can essentially incrementally go through gigantic amounts of material and have a linear growth in knowledge over time. Since you make the cards alongside reading the material incrementally, you don’t face the issue most anki users end up with regarding cramming cards rather than learning and then making them
