As of 2015, signing up for Quizlet flashcards is free, although users have the option to add superpowers to their accounts for a modest charge. Once logged in, users create study sets, record voices or study from existing sets. Creating a class group makes group study possible.
Quizlet flashcards have numerous study sets already added by other users. When users search for a term, the results page shows different card sets related to the topic. To narrow the search results, search filter options are available. Quizlet tools, such as copy, add to class, add to folder, share and print, allow for easy management of the search results. Users study several terms together by starring the terms they are interested in. They also learn terms by listening to the audio versions or by viewing the terms in different languages.
By default, Quizlet flashcards display the term first before showing the explanation. The application’s flip and flow modes enable users to navigate to the other side of the flashcards. Whether in the flip or flow mode, the user navigates using the mouse, arrow keys and space bar. Users can activate simultaneous viewing of the term and explanation sides by clicking the Both Sides button. Smartphone applications allow the user to view Quizlet flashcards from anywhere.
