Online Flashcards, get the most out of Flashcard learning

Let us give you a review on how online flashcard maker can improve your learning process and follow our top tips to get the best out of them!

Why do flashcards work?

Science proves it

If you have had any experience with taking lecture notes, then you must be familiar with highlighting keywords that are relevant to your studies. However, Professor Dunlovsky at Kent State University (Ohio, US) found out that this technique, together with other old-fashioned ones, does not help you remember the notion you are trying to learn over time.

The reserach team claims that other techniques should be used, such as explaining points and facts in a Q&A format, dedicating and allotting time for the study of each specific area of the material and testing one’s knowledge through the use of flashcards.

The research proposes a list of methodologies that are more effective compared to the classical ones. Our team at ClassMaster.io has made it our mission to build an app based on these revolutionary techniques.
