Theses web sites are great for studying vocab, learning math facts, or memorizing country or state capitals. Any time you have two concepts you need to learn, practice card sites are a great choice. Teachers can create practice cards for their students and post a link on their web sites. Parents and students can create their own cards as a study aid.


Quizlet.jpgQuizlet

This is my favorite of all of the practice card web sites.
Quizlet is a lightning fast way to memorize vocabulary lists. It's like flashcards, but much more fun and interactive. This online tool allows you or your students to enter vocabulary terms and definitions to create electronic flashcards and quizzes to enhance word study in any language or a content area. Students may choose to create electronic tests, or the networking page allows them to interact and learn with other users who have the same words. Teacher or students can create groups to share word lists. (Information copied from Teachers First).

QuizBoxes

Stu’s Quiz Boxes (for Windows) might remind people of the TV gameshow, Jeopardy!, but it’s not that, it’s much better than that. You can use it to make an exciting, interactive and educational computer-based gameshow available to everybody. It can be used in so many different situations – in schools and colleges, at conferences and parties. But the main use is expected to be in classrooms, that’s why Quiz Boxes is all about POINTS, not DOLLARS. There is no link to gambling like there is with that other game.
As Interactive Whiteboards (IWBs) and data projectors become more widely used in schools, there is a need for motivating, interactive and educational software to complement them. Many of the IWB titles available involve working with one student while everybody else looks on. That’s where Stu’s Quiz Boxes is different. Firstly it’s all about teamwork – Quiz Boxes can be played by up to 6 teams!

FlashQard

FlashQard is an educational software to improve your learning process. It is designed to help you learn not only a new language but anything that can be learned! This aim is achieved by using the widely used method, called Leitner System, and the idea of "different card types for different purposes". Leitner System (proposed by Sebastian Leitner in the 1970s) is one the most efficient methods for learning. Which allows you to focus on the most difficult flashcards and not waste your time on what you have already learned.

JVLT

Examples containing one or many of the vocabulary words may be specified. jVLT also can perform quizzes using a flash card system which is similar to the selective learning system proposed by German psychologist Sebastian Leitner.

Additional features:
  • As jVLT is written in JAVA, it runs on many platforms, including Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
  • The data storage format is (zipped) XML, making it possible to easily convert your vocabulary into other formats, e.g. for displaying it on a web page.
  • You can perform complex searches (e.g. "Show me all the words that occurred in a quiz during the last three days").
  • The vocabulary list (or a part of it) can be printed.
  • CSV (comma separated values) files can be used to import words and examples.

Mnemosyne Project

mnemosyne_logo.png Welcome to the Mnemosyne Project
The Mnemosyne Project has two aspects:
  • It's a sophisticated free flash-card tool which optimizes your learning process.
  • It's a research project into the nature of long-term memory.

Efficient learning

The Mnemosyne software resembles a traditional flash-card program to help you memorise question/answer pairs, but with an important twist: it uses a sophisticated algorithm to schedule the best time for a card to come up for review. Difficult cards that you tend to forget quickly will be scheduled more often, while Mnemosyne won't waste your time on things you remember well.
