I’m always on the lookout for a decent online study tool for my son. When I stumbled upon this one, I truly felt I struck gold.
You can study and master virtually anything. A student can make his own sets of flash cards—or study from the millions of sets already there. [Yes, millions!] It’s ridiculous.
My son redeemed himself—and his geometry grade—in a matter of days with the help of these tools. What I really like is that Quizlet offers six different ways to study:
- Flash cards
- Track progress as you learn
- Spelling [type what you hear]—18 different languages!
- Test your knowledge—it’s automatically graded
- Play games that earn points by typing in words before definitions vanish from screen. Flash cards even ‘speak’ (in 18 languages)! With the click of a button you can compete with your friends, a study group or just against yourself in learning games that present the same information in a different way to help you master it.
If you’re a visual learner, pay a measly $15 per year to be able to upload visuals. It’s worth it! Otherwise, this is free.
Categories include arts & literature, language & vocabulary, math & science, history & geography, standardized tests, professional & careers—even the written driver’s test from the DMV. Make your own sets or study from sets already there.
Quizlet has free mobile apps, too. And as far as strength in numbers goes, getta loada these:
- #2 app in the free Education category of the app store
- #160 website in the U.S.
- 1,429,568 study sessions today
- 80,491,444 visitors (last 12 months)
- 22,568,741 study sets
- Over 14 million people use Quizlet each month
Oh, and by the way, my endorsement of Quizlet is completely unsolicited. It has made a difference for us and I want to share this info with other parents. A cool footnote is that Quizlet was started in 2005 by a high school sophomore who was studying for a French test.
