The course element card2brain allows learning with flashcards.

As soon as the pre-settings are done, the course element can be added as all other course elements are added in OpenOlat. After title and description and as required the visibility and the access have been adapted, the "Alias of flashcards" need to be added in the tab Set of flashcards.

To add this alias, a set of flashcards need to be created at first. The flashcards cannot be created in OpenOlat directly. The flashcard is connected into OpenOlat. As soon as a set of flashcards is created, the alias can be taken from the details. The alias is the last part of the weblink, e.g. 20170425_sea_geografie. Copy the alias and add it to OpenOlat. Afterward the course element is saved.
