How I Use It
If I were to use this application for a class I would encourage students to create their own study sets to prepare for a quiz or an exam. This tool is truly useful when trying to memorize a significant amount of information because it presents flashcards that you can flip back and forth. If a student does not like this they can see all of the information on one screen. It could also be beneficial if a professor wants to make a study guide for his or her students. I specifically would not do this and would encourage students to make their own flashcards, but this is another option while using this application.
My Take
I do not recommend people to use this application in general. It is useful if you want to create your own study set and do your own work individually. I do not think using another study set to study for a quiz or exam is the best option. Much of the information that others put on this application has errors or is simply wrong information. The reliability of using other study sets to prepare for a quiz or a test is very low. There are no credentials and users can post what they want in their study set. The information is not fact checked. I believe that the tool is only useful at the individual level and is very restrictive.
