Taverna is a collection of workflow enactment and description components, including a high level language for workflows called Scufl (Simple Conceptual Unified Flow Language), a pure Java object model, parser to populate the model, and a set of views and controllers (including some Swing components to drop into your workflow-enabled applications). In order to actually run workflows you also need the myGrid workflow enactment engine.
Asymptopia Flashcard System uses Motif and LaTeX to produce, manage, and use attractively formatted flashcards. You load some or all of your "collections" and set the timer for pop-up frequency. The GUI interface and "Collection Manager" make creating and modifying flashcards as simple as pushing a single button. A knowledge of LaTeX is only required when entering special symbols.
