If you've been using Quizlet's full page Cards mode, today you'll notice a change – the option to choose between Flip and Flow.
Several months ago we launched a brand new Cards mode that introduced many improvements. You could study the entire set using one keystroke (pressing your down arrow key) to see the other side and the next card, turn on autoplay for a hands-free study experience, star the terms you want to focus on, and jump to a specific term using the list to the right. This has been a big hit with the millions of students using it.
Since then, we've launched a preview of our new set page design (read about it here) and one of the things we did was remove the traditional flashcards from the top of that page. We received a lot of feedback from users telling us that they wanted to continue using those "click to flip" flashcards. So we've now combined the two Cards modes into one full page Flashcards mode where you can choose between the two "Motions," which we're calling Flip and Flow.
You can switch between Flip and Flow in the sidebar.
With Flip you can arrow through just terms or definitions, and then click to see the other side of the card – just like studying with paper flashcards.
With Flow you can go through your cards using the down arrow key to reveal the next side and then the next card – all in one motion.
We've also added Keyboard Shortcuts to make studying in Flashcards mode even easier.
You can hide the sidebar for a full screen study experience (click the blue tab on the right to open it again).
Give the new Flip mode a try and let us know what you think in feedback!
