Brainscape - Smart Flashcards
iOS Universal Education
Find, create, and share SMART FLASHCARDS on any device. DOUBLE your learning speed using the most effective study system on the planet. Keep all your content in sync across Brainscape’s website and all your iOS devices.
Brainscape works by personalizing the TIMING of each flashcard repetition, using proven cognitive science. Whether you’re learning a language, preparing for a test, or just acquiring some fun trivia, Brainscape spaces the repetition of each bite-sized concept based on exactly the right interval for YOUR brain.
All you have to do is rate how well you know each concept, on a scale of 1-5, and Brainscape determines the right time to quiz you again. It's strangely addicting and is scientifically proven to slash your required study time.
So where do all of Brainscape’s great flashcards come from? Three places:
THE WORLD’S TOP EXPERTS. Brainscape partners with top publishers, schools, and educators to create flashcards for subjects as diverse as Foreign Languages, MCAT, Music Theory, SAT prep, AP Exams, Series 7 prep, and Sports Trivia.
YOUR PEERS. Top students, professors, teachers, and businesses around the world have created over 1 million subjects that are available to search on our Marketplace.
YOU! You can easily create multimedia flashcards very easily both on Brainscape’s website AND within the app itself. You can also share your decks with your classmates and collaboratively develop content together.
In the future, Brainscape plans to make this system infinitely more efficient, convenient, fun, and social, so please be sure to give us feedback to help us improve the product. It is users like YOU who have helped us reach a community of millions of learners already. Help us create a Brainscape community that spans the whole world of learners!
