Students and teachers can create sets of terms and descriptions to memorize, and the good news is that it is free.  It is free for students to search for, an create sets of terms and definitions to study.

  3. Speller:  Students have to type what they hear.
  4. Test: Students can select the following formats of questions when reviewing the terms. Written: where the student has to type the answer, Matching: student has to match the term with the definition, Multiple Choice: student is given a word and has to select definition, True/False: student chooses if term and definition go together.
  5. Scatter: student has to use the cursor to drag a term to its definition
  6. Gravity: student has to type definitions before the terms disappear.
