We're just days away from launching our new set of features which includes the ability to make, view and print flashcards. These are smaller than the existing revision cards and will automatically convert into crosswords and quizsearches (wordsearches with questions).
Right now we need to know how you all currently make flashcards for your revision so we can make our service do exactly what students want.
Do these make sense to you? What other types have worked for you in different subjects?
sounds like a good idea. I currently use flashcards for questions on one side and answers on the other, but also I like to use flashcards just to write up brief notes in bullet points.
So if you're making brief notes - what goes on each side?
I write them up on one side and then write them from memory on the other.
i write some questions from a textbook ,eg geography on one side and write out the answer to that question on the other side
We figure it would help to be able to see each side separately so you could check whether you know what's on the other side.
What do you think of being able to test yourself by typing in what you think are the contents of the back of the card and seeing whether you were right?
yeah, that would be great
The examples make sense and would be really helpful. It would also be useful if we could easily print them out and then they could be used to help us revise if we are not online.
Yep - they will; print out like the revision cards - so you can fold them back to back.
We're trying to work out all the ways they could be used in all the different subjects - we have:
question - answer
word(s) - definition
Name - what they said/did
Theory - explanation
Word/phrase - translation
Pictures which could explain. Or maybe you could include things that would help you remember something.
It would be great if the flashcards could have different colour writing or background, when i revise i write things in different colours to help me remember them better.
Yes, that is something we'd really like to do in the future - thanks for the suggestion.
that's ok :)
how do you add colour to the flashcards??
Thanks for the question. The idea is that the flashcards are short and sweet - probably a few words or a sentence - just black and white. The revision cards can contain longer notes and you can select all the usual colour options.
Is this OK or do you think the flashcards ought to have colour?
When I'm viewing the cards online for notes I have to physically turn my computer screen to read the other side, is there a way to stop this?
i think the flashcards ought to have colour as well, as different colours will help me catagorise them
