About Quizlet

Quizlet is a free website providing learning tools for students, including flashcards, study and game modes. It was created by high school sophomore in 2005 and now contains over 40 million study sets. All of the material is user-generated.

Quizlet Pros

Quizlet does away with stacks or paper note cards! The best thing about Quizlet is that students can share and edit cards by class or study group. If one student edits a card but leaves out something important another classmate can add to the card. Everyone in the class or study group would be able to see the edits.

Quizlet Cons

Quizlet has a great quiz/review feature for the cards created by the students. However, if a student makes a mistake on one of the cards regarding content and the other students do not catch this it can lead to problems. Students could be studying incorrect information and not even know it. It is important to have the correct information in the cards.
