This is a deck based on the course Learning How to Learn.
The course consists of 38 short lectures.
This deck of flashcards was originally constructed by taking snippets of audio and related screenshots from each of the lectures and constructing a card for each snippet with a link back to the original lecture. The famous 20 rules written by Dr. Piotr Wozniak were then applied to each card. These rules help design cards for a flashcard program that uses spaced repetition, such as Anki. As a result many of the cards were reduced to simpler cards. For those cards consisting of lists, memory tools were added to assist in remembering.
To use this deck, it is recommended that you
Since the default settings for Anki are geared for language learning, mostly vocabulary, the default 'rate of learning' settings are fast compared to learning from a lecture. For example, by default, when first learning a card, you are given 3 attempts to learn the card. The second attempt is one minute after the first, the third attempt is 10 minutes later. To learn from this deck, it is recommended you provide yourself with more learning opportunities. For example, the recommended settings I am currently using are '1 10 1440 8640' (which is 1 minute, 10 minutes, 1 day, 6 days):
Whereas, the default is:
16/1/2020: Added a custom basic and cloze note type.
12/1/2020: Converted subdecks into tags.

When in focused mode, and stuck on a new problem, why is it difficult to come-up with new ideas and approaches, concepts that have not been thought of before?
difficult to be creative
A concept that has not been thought of before is symbolized here by this green-colored neural pattern towards the bottom of the pinball machine.
Since you haven't thought that thought before, you don't even know how that pattern feels or where it is. So how are you going to develop that new thought in the first place? Not only do you not know where the pattern is or what the pattern looks like, but see all the rubber bumpers that are blocking your access whatever direction you decide to move in?

good dek baby
i like it
Very well-made deck. I like that it is so comprehensive and includes the teachers' faces – this makes it surprisingly more memorable (if you took the MOOC).
Regarding learning steps, I have fared very well with the following. It takes the same principle you propose, but more efficient
edit: u/EpicClapton here. You said in your reddit post that you were reworking the deck to simplify the questions – to split-out each card into simpler cards.
Is there an update on that? :)
I really like the way the cards are formatted and done -- certainly a lot of work was put into developing this deck (including multimedia) and I heartily thank the author for sharing it.
The number of decks/sub-decks caused Anki to tell me I had too many decks but that is easily taken care of (if it bothers you) with the tools in Anki. I converted the sub-deck headings into abbreviated tags and then folded them all into one main deck I have already created for learning techniques and technology. As they say, YMMV.

This has been fixed as of 2020-1-12. Sub-decks have been converted into tags.
Good work, it will help me to improve my learning of the concept in the course.
A perfect refresher to an amazing course!
This will really drive the concepts in for long term memory, and deeper understanding.
