Create a Flashcard Set

Once you sign up for Flashcard machine, the first thing you would want to do is to create a set. A flashcard set contains flashcards related to a specific topic, which makes it easy to create flashcards according to each subject, chapter, exam, etc. For example, you can create a flashcard set by the name of ‘Biology’ to create flashcards related to your biology class. Similarly, you can make flashcard sets with names like ‘Biology Mid-Term Exam’ to create a set for a specific exam.

If you are wondering about the set of options listed on tabs above (in the below screenshot); these are tabs which allow you to view collaborative sets, study sessions, favorites and your flashcard pages, as well as your uploaded media (images and audio). You might want to upload a few images that you want to use as flashcards and then use them as your cards later on. This is because when you intend to pick an image when making your flashcards, you can either use a URL or an image from your set of uploaded images.

When making a set, you will be able to pick a title, description, category and education level. This will help you identify the flashcard set. Once done, click Advanced Editor to add flashcards to the set. We created a set about Alopecia and created cards to define alopecia.

Conduct Study Sessions

Once your flashcard sets are ready you can conduct study sessions by going to a set and selecting the Start Study Session option. Below is a sample card which we made in PowerPoint and exported as an image. You can also pick images from the Internet via URL or save images by performing a search or from different websites. We just wanted to show how you can even create study cards by making a PowerPoint slide and then saving it as an image file. We created a sample card to define alopecia.

Once the card is flipped, a definition is revealed. This means you can create flashcards with questions or hints and flip the card to view the answers. Just like this card was used to define alopecia, once flipped.
