 Quizlet takes information in “sets” rather than a single flashcard, then pairs the answer and question together. Using this method Quizlet is able to pair answers in games, which are the main feature of Quizlet.  It is free and there are some restrictions, and some ads on your work but many sets are already made for you and it's fun for the students.

There are two games within Quizlet: “Space Race” scrolls the terms across the screen and the user tries to type in the answer as quickly as possible to get a good score, and “Scatter,” which displays the answers and questions scrambled across the screen. As the user drags the right answer (or question) over its counterpart, it disappears. A timer on top keeps score.

“Familiarize,” another option from Quizlet, displays flashcards as they are commonly known, with additional options to show the question and answer at the same time or to quiz in reverse. The “Learn” button offers users the chance to be quizzed on the material (one question at a time), and there is also a Test option where answers can be put into multiple choice, true/false, or write-in formats.

On top of making the flashcard process fun, Quizlet gives users a range of ways to integrate their learning into their lives. Combining allows users to combine knowledge sets to test across disciplines, links for MySpace and Facebook let users integrate learning into their social networks, and a chat box on the set page lets users talk to one another.  The negative side is that the entertainment side can distract from the learning side but it's up to the teacher to review the flash card section before they assign.  So have fun.
