Quizlet is among the largest user-generated consumer learning platforms with over 50 million active users each month, including 2 in 3 high schoolers and 1 in 2 college students in the U.S. Founded in 2005, their mission is to help students practice and master whatever they are learning, providing activities and games to help people effectively study over time so they can master foundational information and retain it long-term.
Originally known for its digital flashcards, the platform has since accelerated its offerings to include games, writing and spelling exercises, quizzes, and diagrams that are engaging and easy-to-use while also proving to have a positive impact in retaining information. Quizlet’s simple tools help students study smarter; over 90% of students who learn with Quizlet report higher grades.
To start studying, users choose from existing study sets or create their own with terms, definitions and images to perfectly coincide with class subject matter. Their ‘Learn’ mode provides a guided study plan for students preparing for upcoming tests and finals.
Quizlet is available on desktop and mobile, so students can study anywhere, anytime from their iOS and Android devices. They operate on a freemium business model by serving ads on the platform to users over age 13. Annual subscription offerings for students, Quizlet Go ($11.99/year) and Quizlet Plus ($19.99/year), offer advanced features like offline studying, no ads, and the ability to upload personal images and audio recordings.
Quizlet is the Winner of a Cool Tool Award for “Best Student Study Tool Solution” as part of The EdTech Awards 2020 from EdTech Digest.
