SUU Online's App of the Month for February

Quizlet

Quizlet allows users to create and share flashcard sets. Quizlet includes a teacher role, and with this role, teachers can create classes, add flashcard sets, and invite users to the class.

When creating flashcards, users can include images and voice recordings. Also, to speed up the process, Quizlet has an auto-define feature: Quizlet will generate possible definitions from which you can choose. To invite students to the class, instructors just have to copy and paste the class URL into his/her Canvas course. Students just have to open the link and create an account if he/she doesn't already have one.

You can also install the Canvas Quizlet integration and then embed flashcard sets into Canvas directly.

Students can practice and make their own flashcards on their computers, but they can also use the Quizlet app to review flashcards, play a matching game, and the Learn feature on the go. Students can also create their own flashcards with the app. The app is free, but some features of Quizlet may have a fee.
