Many of us can remember carrying rubber-banded notecards in our backpacks. We’d flip through these homemade flashcards to test our understanding of important material, such as a foreign language or chemistry diagrams. This learning tool is simple, accessible, and—most important—effective, making it a go-to for many long after graduation.

Analog flashcards translate really well to e-learning. They give learners a chance to challenge their understanding of course topics and receive immediate feedback on their responses. And through the generosity of the E-Learning Heroes community, it’s easy to build out your own flashcard interaction. Just download one of these freebies and make it your own:
