Awhile back, they offered a flashcard feature called Tinycards on their iPhone app, and today they made it available on the Web for the first time. Tinycards is for leaning any subject – not just a new language – so it includes Social Studies, health and other topics, too.
TechCrunch says it wasn’t a very popular mobile feature and it shows that by having a fairly limited selection (limited, at least, if you compare it to other tools on The Best Tools To Make Online Flashcards best).
However, I’ve also got to say that its “create” function is one of the easiest I’ve seen of all the flashcard apps (including a super-easy image search ability). This creates an exceptional opportunity for our English Language Learners to make useful resources for an authentic audience and that can help encourage motivation.
