New Feature: Earn XP for practicing Duolingo words in Tinycards on web & Android!

Hey, folks!

The Tinycards team is running an experiment on web and Android that lets you earn XP when you study flashcard decks from Duolingo.

The goal is to give you credit for studying your Duolingo words whether you study them in Duolingo or in Tinycards. This also means that if you work on Duolingo stuff in Tinycards it can help you keep your streak going in Duolingo.

If our experiment is successful, we’ll be rolling it out to all web and Android users first, then to iOS users soon after that.

Stay tuned! And if you haven't already tried Tinycards, you can check it out at tinycards.duolingo.com.

EDIT: Good news - this experiment has been a big success! We will be launching this feature to all web and Android users today (July 10, 2018). We also plan to bring this feature to iOS sometime in the next couple months. When we do, I'll post an update here!

This is great! I actually stopped using Tinycards because it did not give me XP credit...

Thanks Duolingo! And thanks, Justin, for announcing the news!

Seems like Tinycards stopped awarding XPs altogether, on any platform (I tried PC and Android). That would be sad if it was meant to stay, hopefully they'll roll this change back.

August 14, 2019

I just notice that Tinycards stopped awarding XPS two or three days ago.

August 17, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mary669053

I noticed that there are no longer points for TinyCards. So sad.

How do people rack up 100s of points in minutes?

Have you removed this feature now? I use Tiny Cards every day. I appreciate the DuoLingo Experience points. Has this ended?

August 14, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LorettaPresley

Will what you do on Tinycards also affect "word strength" on Duo?

June 30, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/OmegaGmaster

This sounds pretty neat!

Another feature I would like to see someday is the ability to upload audio for each fact on a card within a TinyCards deck along with text/image. This would be extremely useful for covering less-studied languages and languages that have no TTS program available on TinyCards.

It would also be extraordinarily useful for covering endangered languages, which make up an overwhelming majority of the TinyCards decks I curate, and an overwhelming majority of languages of that majority have very difficult sounds to replicate without hearing it first, making audio an absolute must for them.

Thanks for this feature! It's good to see Team TinyCards making announcements on the forum.

June 30, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dogomolo

Good explanation! We should definitely see custom audio feature.

This is a great idea! I can totally see my colleague who teaches music using this feature to add sounds and notes in lieu of words (e.g. name this instrument / what note is this).

I like the addition of Tiny Cards by linking it with your Duolingo progress.

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/D3XT3RY0NuT

I would like to give 5XP or something like this per lesson, because it will be far more easier to farm XP on Tinycards.

June 29, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JustinSensei

Thank you for your feedback! Part of the experiment is that we're testing how much XP per Tinycards lesson is the right amount, so different people will see different amounts of XP (and some people won't see XP at all until we launch to 100% of users).

June 29, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EricHillia

Hi Justin, will we eventually get XP in Duolingo for all of the previous work we've done, or will it only be from here on out? Also, for us plus subscribers, will time spent in Tinycards eventually be added to our total time in Duolingo? Thanks! Loving the updates!

July 10, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tony979198

Make the award proportional. If the lesson is short then 1XP is more than enough. If 5XP is too much, then 3 or 4XP might suffice.

August 17, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/InvincibleCat

Web and android users get 5 Duolingo xp per tinycard lesson or practice.

When I used tiny cards for about a day it stopped giving xp... How do I solve this issue?

August 14, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DexterityCheck

I'm going to approach from a different perspective and say that removing this feature tips the scales of usability more towards Anki and other flashcard apps that gamify language learning. Speaking for myself I definitely used TinyCards a lot with both the Duolingo and non-Duolingo decks and as I've said before there are several features, enhancements, and bug fixes that need to be added to TinyCards. TinyCards should work still interface with the core Duolingo coursework, otherwise why have a flashcard app at all? The "remainder decks", for instance are the result of some arbitrary card number limit which Anki does not have. Seems to me that fixing the remainder deck issues and maybe adding an XP Cap for completed decks is a better way to go than removing XP earning all together. Furthermore, I really hope they will start to support user-uploaded audio and content from decks in all languages, not just the ones Duolingo has created.

TL,DR: Expansion is the way to go here. Not contraction.

August 15, 2019

I make my own Dutch decks. Which decks do you get XP for? Are there official Duolingo decks for each language?

June 29, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JustinSensei

Hi! Initially, you'll only get XP for official Duolingo decks. In the coming months, we plan to work on making more official Duolingo decks for more languages and on making it possible to earn Duolingo XP for user-created decks in your learning language. That's a little further out, though.

June 29, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Michael.Lubetsky

Justin,

I have been making decks of vocab for Klingon that closely track the Duolingo course (I have 15 sets so far that extend to the last checkpoint). They have been attracting users and there don't seem to be many alternatives (at least so far). Could you please let "Team Tinycards" know that I would be happy to transfer them to Duolingo to offer as official decks if doing so would enable myself and the other users to gain exp for using them.

Anyway, Duo knows how to reach me if interested.

--Mike

June 29, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JustinSensei

That's really cool, Mike! Let me talk to the team and see if that's something we can do in the near term or whether it's best to wait until we can offer XP for user-created decks like yours.

The only way I know for now to get credit is. Delete Tinycards app, don’t worry it won’t delete your progress. Then use safari to go to the tinycards website and save it to your home screen. Now when you click on the shortcut you will earn xp. It’s not perfect as you may need to scroll a bit to see everything. But it works. Hope that helps.

I really like using Tiny Cards to support what I’m learning in Duolingo. It’s good review and a nice change of pace. I think 5 XP is just right. If it gave me fewer XP, I probably wouldn't be as inclined to use it when pressed for time like I do now. I’m looking forward to this integrating with the apps and possible syncing with our weak works in Duolingo. Thank you!

October 8, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Trilby16

To take it a step further, I don't see how you can learn anything on Duo without using Tinycards as well. If you're not learning vocab first on Tinycards, then what? You're using the drop-downs to complete Duo sentences? That is not a good way to learn. You need the vocabulary first, then make sentences.

August 15, 2019

    I tried out a deck, and I am in the test group, so I can get 2XP per deck (it's not much toward that challenge, but every little bit helps). But where do I go to report problems with it?

    July 3, 2018

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LightKnight73

    Currently I see official TinyCards decks for Russian, Italian, Swedish, Spanish, French, German, and Portuguese, plus some other side decks by Duolingo (e.g. Cyrillic alphabet, Japanese writing systems, Spanish podcasts). Here is the full list.

    July 11, 2018

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rhabarberbarbara

    Is it possible to synchronize how well I know the words from duo to tinycards? The practice button on tinycards only uses the vocabulary that I have previously unlocked on tinycards (which in my case isn't a lot because I didn't use tinycards). It's kind of boring to let tinycards introduce vocabulary to me that I already know. It would be much better if I could train the words that according to duo are not at 100% (similar to the word list).

    June 30, 2018

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dogomolo

    You are very right. It is hours of waste (possibly) to be quized by words you already know well. But many of us have weak or moderate vocabulary which needs renewal. Otherwise we wouldn't come here to practice languages.

    June 30, 2018

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rhabarberbarbara

    I think independently of how well one knows a language, synchronizing would be helpful. Because I think the number of people, who really want to be quizzed on a man, a woman, a girl, a boy and an apple before getting to the vocabulary they are having a hard time with, is rather small.

    Keeping my fingers crossed

    July 2, 2018

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/davidcwalls

    Yes! Having vocabulary levels linked between Duolingo and Tinycards so that working in one would affect the other would make Tinycards very much more effective. Sadly, it doesn't sound promising based on previous posts, e.g. https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/19243006

    June 30, 2018

    [deactivated user]

      That's why I quit using TinyCards. I had originally thought that it would be a good way to upgrade my vocabulary skills, but I kept being quizzed on Basics 1.

      i recommend not taking the quiz on the whole course but on a specific deck

      Have you given any thought to using volunteer contributors to build Tinycard decks in a similar way to how the trees are built in Duolingo? As you can see from the other comments, there is a lot of desire not only to have Tinycards decks for Duolingo courses, but also to build them.

      Alternatively, having a way to collaborate on decks would be very helpful so that those of us building decks don't work at cross-purposes.

      June 30, 2018

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JustinSensei

      Hi, David! Apologies for the delayed response. We're exploring a number of ways to make it easier for volunteers and users in general to create and share great decks in Tinycards, but those ideas are in their early stages, so there's nothing in the immediate pipeline that we expect to see changes on in the next couple months.

      July 10, 2018

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AndroidKanada

      Excellent - I'd love to have decks for conjugation and declension, and I'd be prepared to rough them in (from a good reference source) and submit them, if I only knew how.

      I bought some books "Grammar Drills" and "Verb Drills" and rather than just write the answer "once" in a workbook, I am creating TinyDecks in a set so I can practice them all again using Spaced Repetition - it takes a long time to enter them all (including figuring out the best format) but even just doing that, I feel more fluent already - it is all part of the learning process

      September 5, 2018

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AndroidKanada

      OK, I figured out the interface - it's not that intuitive but it's not rocket science. I can already feel this helps.

      Hello again! Thank you so much for all the detailed feedback in this thread. It sounds like a lot of people are interested in:

      1) Using Tinycards for more languages than those that currently have "courses" in Tinycards, and 2) Tying the cards you see in Tinycards more closely to your progress (and your current course version) in Duolingo.

      That's super helpful feedback!

      As it happens, we have some interesting ideas in the works that we think should help with both of these needs. I can't share the details at the moment, but I want you to know that we're working on this, so stay tuned for more news in the coming weeks!

      Justin, I hope these innovations are still in the works but as I told Karint it would be great if Tinycards supported User-recorded audio. The current audio algorithm doesn't always provide true translations (in Japanese).

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LightKnight73

      Thanks for this valuable addition to our Duolingo experience.

      It would work best if the decks were aligned to the respective Duolingo courses. For example, the Russian deck seems to be misaligned with the current tree (sometimes I'm presented with words I have no recollection of seeing in the corresponding Duolingo lesson), and there are some small mistakes hidden here and there.

      If these issues are corrected, then this is going to be super great :-)

      July 11, 2018

      Brilliant - I definitely use TinyCards alongside my Duolingo lessons to reinforce the vocabulary - thank you

      July 11, 2018

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Christophe956987

      A couple notes and feed back....

      Having TinyCards is a great tool to use to learn and reinforce vocabulary. Earning XP is also great and will encourage learners to try and use the service.

      I think 5xp may be a little excessive, 2xp should provide enough reward.

      I normally use Tinycards on my Iphone, but logged into the desktop version today to see if I got XP and I did. At this point I noticed an error. When I practiced the Spanish Places Level is reduced my strength bar even though all the sub category cards were full. When I went back in to the Iphone app, all my levels were full.

      I look forward to the new tree and vocabulary being aligned with tiny cards, and would even volunteer some time to help with the transition.

      It would be great if the word strengths and weaknesses communicated back and forth between Duolingo and tiny cards... but i see that as being less of a priority.

      Focus should be placed on updating the vocabulary to new trees and adding more languages.

      Thank you for all the work that you and the rest of the Duolingo team do. It has been a tremendous value to me as I work to learn a new language.

      July 12, 2018

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dru_Morgan

      The bar being "less than full" when all the cards are full is annoying - but I've heard different stories all over, including someone suggesting it is a sync issue when using two different platforms

      I HAVE been able to push the bar closer to "full" by continually re-practicing the deck, so perhaps it is all by design - but I agree, I really liked it showing "full" so I could quickly scan down the list to see the ones I need to refresh

      July 12, 2018

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JustinSensei

      Hello! Thanks for flagging this - we've identified a bug that's keeping those strength bars from filling up completely on web and on Android, and we're working to get a fix out ASAP.

      As a counter to other comments, I felt the 5 XP was just right. I know it will probably all be done according to metrics, lol, but there was typing involved, etc. If it gave me fewer XP, I probably wouldn't use it. But 10 XP is too much. I personally think you hit the mail on the head, especially for more advanced levels.

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JustinSensei

      Hi, Donna! Currently, you would only earn XP for studying an official Duolingo deck. If you're not earning XP for a deck that you think should be eligible, could you post a link to the deck here so we can check it out? Thanks!

      Also, double-check to make sure you're logged in to the same account in Duolingo and in Tinycards. Sometimes people get confused and end up with two separate accounts.

      Hello again! My apologies for the delayed response. I'm afraid I'm not able to see any difference on my end between web and Android - I'm earning XP for both when I practice that deck. Are you still unable to earn XP for that deck on Android? Are you able to earn XP for any other decks on Android?

      Hi Justin Slightly off topic but I and several others have asked when the Tinycards courses will be revised to match the new course content. The Duolingo courses in Tinycards are much less helpful with the skills not matching. I have yet to see a response to know when this will be dealt with.

      Dear JustinSensei,

      How do I make a request for an official duolingo japanese course deck? I think it would be extremely helpful, especially with all the different pronunciations of the various kanji.

      An official deck would be nice because it would match the course, I wouldn't have to worry about user-created errors, and the xp is a great motivator.

      I really hope this message reaches you!

      Kind regards, Serena

      July 1, 2018

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/spiceyokooko

      Purely by chance I decided today to start a review of my completed tinycard decks as some of them had decayed and I was getting a bit bogged down with all the verb lessons I was doing on the main duolingo site and decided some review was needed.

      I was delighted to see that the tinycard deck lessons were now giving xp, but in my opinion 5xp per tinycard lesson was probably a bit too generous, 1 or 2xp per lesson would probably be more appropriate. Just completing about half a dozen tinycard deck subjects netted me about 200xp, which seems too much in my mind.

      My only other comment is that would it be possible to make the continue button at the completion of the tinycard lesson clearable by pressing the return key on the web version? At the moment the only way of clearing it is to click it with the mouse which means having to take a hand off the keyboard to use the mouse. Being able to continue with both hands on the keyboard would be much more convenient I feel.

      Nevertheless, many thanks for your continued improvement of the duolingo learning experience!

      July 2, 2018

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JustinSensei

      Hello! XP earned in Tinycards counts towards your streak in Duolingo. For example, if your daily goal is 20XP, you can keep your streak going as long as you reach 20XP through any combination of activity in Duolingo or in Tinycards.

      July 3, 2018

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hanspersson

      What I meant was that I assume that there is some kind of syncing going on (just like when doing lessons on mobile) and that will probably fail sometimes causing people to think they have done their quota for the day while the system thinks they have not. We'll see.

        Thanks...though to be honest this doesn’t answer my question (but I still appreciate the reply). It's baffling to me why there isn't a form of practice that focuses solely on my failed words/phrases. Having me practice words I’ve already mastered is practically useless. Sure, maybe there’s some algorithm that does this in the background (though I sure can’t tell), but I'd pay premium for something that could just flat out ignore words/phrases I’ve gotten right. Alas, I'll go back to writing each failed word/phrase down on paper and quizzing myself the “old fashioned” way. It’s still a phenomenal app & community; perhaps this is something that’ll be rolled out in the future. Thanks again!

        All of the stories have official Tiny Cards sets except the two new sets (Now named set 1 and set 2 that appeared 3 days ago. These new sets are aimed at beginners. I know that all the others have official status because, until a few weeks ago, there were links to Tiny Cards after each story or part story. For some reason that I do not understand these links have now disappeared and I have had to make a shortcut on my browser that links to all the cards. This is annoying because you have to scroll through all the card sets to find the right one. I have completed all stories twice and started my third time. I still learn a lot every day (I must be a slow learner:). I hope the Tiny card links return soon.

        I describe myself as not being self-motivated. I have books but its the accountability and point system that encourage me to get on and learn. I was doing well here until the tournaments came into play. Then it became "okay, gotta get points, no time to learn because that is slower and why on earth are people earning hundreds a day?!" Seeing people racking up 500+ points a day actually discourages me from trying. If I could close that off so it isn't up there taunting me, that would be nice. As far as Tinycards... I think that earning XP from tinycards is more beneficial than tournaments. If they were actually cut to benefit the tournaments, that is super backwards. Regardless of my opinion on the tournaments though, Duolingo is a personal experience and even if you only earn XP but that doesn't count toward the tournament, it would be better than nothing. Or only earn XP on decks without the bar currently filled so you can't game it. Anything is better than nothing, and nothing is bad. Point being, there are means of mitigating or solving the problem, but simply cutting something that users appreciate, without warning, announcement, explanation, or consideration is the worst decision. I hope that this will be fixed.
