Top 5 flash-card tools

Studying vocabulary and content through flashcards can help many students to learn a large amount of content in a short amount of time.  While this is not an exclusive way of teaching material, it can be a very helpful tool in practicing vocabulary and in making connections between different concepts and ideas.  Here are some excellent online tools to help you create interactive study tools for your classroom:
Flashcard Stash


A powerful online tool for creating and studying flash cards.  This includes a variety of study and testing methods, where the program gives you clues, but still keeps the deck challenging.  There are over 1650 pages of user created word lists to choose from, or you can create your own.

Flashcardlet


Application for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.  Interactive flip card system that once again allows for user-created lists.  Also, there is an extensive library of pre-made lists searchable by topic.  If you add this app to your classroom technology, all of your students will have access to the word lists you create or identify.

StudyBlue



Study blue is an incredible mobile application for all sorts of education coolness.  Their application is available for iOS and android based phones and devices.  The free version allows you to create and use flashcards while online.  The teacher creates the class and can create word lists to share with the class.  The students can also create their own lists to study and share with classmates. Paid accounts are available yearly $2.50/mo. and monthly $9/mo. which provide a few more advanced (but not necessary) features.

Flashcard Exchange
Another interactive online flashcard application with an absolutely huge library of pre-made flashcards from alternative medicine to law enforcement. Also allows you to create your own.  Works with flashcards++ and flashcards deluxe apps for mobile devices, allowing you to take your study session on the road.

Cramberry


Another variation of the online flashcard, offers free and pro versions.  Again, a huge library of pre-made flashcard sets, and all exportable to iOS and android flashcard applications.
