Started by high school sophomore Andrew Sutherland in 2005 to help study for a French vocabulary test, Quizlet is the largest independent study site where users can make their own flashcards sets with terms and definitions or choose from millions of flash cards created by others users.  The best part is, it is FREE!!

Topics range from languages to math, science and history. The Powerful Study Tools include:

  • Flashcard Mode - one side for questions, flip side for answers
  • Speller Mode - uses audio to have you type what you hear
  • Learn Mode - restests incorrect answers (the most powerful mode!)
  • Test Mode - generates customizable tests with short-answer, matching, multiple choice and T/F options.
Classroom Application: 
Teachers can create and share online study materials and tests to be used in class or at home.  They can even create a group where students can create study materials for each other.  Now everyone can study in one place and even be notified via email when new sets are added. 


  1. Thank you for sharing this excellent tool! I have been looking for a tool like this for a long time!

  2. Its amazing that if I put a set of questions on a Worksheet, the students don't want to do it. If I give the same exact questions online where they have to access it via internet they are all working on the questions. This will help in the classroom and maybe help them want to study at home. Thanks for the resource.

  3. gFlashcards is very good alternative to quiz let. I use it for my art classes.
