Cram: Creating Flashcards

Cram is an online resource for the use or creation of flash cards. A user has two options, either to use any pre-existing cards or to create their own. A simple search led to multiple flash cards about java which could be very useful in class. There are multiple topics besides computing already available on the site. This site also supports the importation of flash cards through Google Drive.

Creation of the flash cards is very easy, and an account is not needed to create them. The layout is very easy to use, having two text input locations one on the left and one on the right of the page. The left one is used to input the question which will be displayed on the front of the flash card and the right one is used to enter the answer which will be placed on the back of the flashcard.

A good use for these flash cards could be in a revision lesson. Instead of the typical revision where the teacher asks questions, the students could split up into groups and ask questions to each other.

    I think that using flash cards makes revision easier and less boring to students. I like the fact that students can use them with each other as well. Similar to cram there is studyblues:

    Quizlet, also provides a range of similar study tools:

    I believe that such tools should be recommended to the students to help them enjoy their studying time as they also have the possibility to revise by working in groups. I recommend this to all educators who want to engage and motivate their students.
