A Great Alternative to Quizlet

Three times in the last week I've answered emails from readers who were seeking suggestions for alternatives to Quizlet. Each time my answer was to try Knowt

Knowt is a free tool that I've written about a few time in the last couple of years. It's a tool that you can use to create flashcards from scratch or by importing a document and letting Knowt automatically generate flashcards for you. Additionally, Knowt has a large database of flashcards that you can browse through and add into your own account. 

Knowt does more than just flashcards. It also creates practice quizzes for you. The best part of that feature is the ability to pick a target date for learning the material in a set of flashcards. That target date is then used to create a schedule of practice activities. 

Watch my short video that is embedded below to learn more about how Knowt works and why it's a great alternative to Quizlet. 

Turn Any Quiz Into a Game With Quizalize Games

Last week I published a blog post about the new games feature of Quizalize. That feature enables you to take any quiz that you've written or any of the premade quizzes in Quizalize and turn it into one of six arcade-style games for your students to play individually or in teams. The video demo that I initially made for that blog post didn't come out quite as well as I would have liked. So this morning I created a new version of it. 

In this short video I demonstrate how to use the new Quizalize games feature. Specifically, I demonstrate the teacher and student perspectives of playing the Kleo the Koala game in team format. The quiz that I used to create the game is an icebreaker quiz that Quizalize provides in all teacher accounts.
