Good Morning Instructors,

As we get closer to finals week, I encourage you to consider implementing online flashcards into your courses to assist students in studying for their final exams. Online flashcards are an excellent study tool. As the instructor you can create the cards for the students to study from, or you can have students make the cards (this way they will be studying as they create them, which is yet another added benefit). And many online flashcard sites have various study techniques that allow students to print cards, study on their computers, send to their personal mobile devices to study on the go, etc., making studying very user-friendly.

A few online flashcard sites include:
Check these out to find one that best fits your own teaching style and course needs.

For a sample, click here to access a Jing tutorial Kris Ebent, one of our online instructors, created to share with her students for a course assignment. This is a great illustration of how you could implement a similar demonstration for your students.

If you have any questions, please let me know. Have a great rest of Unit 8!
