Learning anatomy and physiology of the heart? Memorizing the phases of the moon? Studying the stages of mitosis?

Meet Quizlet Diagrams. Say goodbye to staring at pictures in your textbook or covering labels with your thumbs — now you can create a diagram using any illustration, map, chart, or photo; label it with points and terms; and study your diagram in engaging and effective ways — right on Quizlet.

In school, my favorite textbooks were always ones with beautiful diagrams and I still remember many of the concepts I learnt from those diagrams. Diagrams are one of the most engaging, versatile and helpful ways to express and learn concepts. At Quizlet, our mission is to help everyone practice and master whatever they are trying to learn; and helping users learn through diagrams take us closer to this mission.

The Quizlet team has been working on diagrams since the beginning of 2017 and we couldn’t be more excited to get it into the hands of students and teachers this year. We’re incredibly proud of our reach today; Quizlet is used by 1 in 2 U.S. high school students and 1 in 3 U.S. college students on the strength of our study sets — but that learning is predominantly through text-based content. Adding diagrams to the mix allows us to help students learn even more subjects than ever before. What we’re launching today is really just the beginning.

Creating a diagram is easy

You can create your own perfect diagram on Quizlet in no time, in case you can't find one created by our other users. Simply upload an image to any study set. Label key locations on the image with terms and optional definitions.

If your image already has text on it, not a problem — you can use our blur tool to remove it. Undo, zoom and pan as much as you need for precision.

You can easily turn your existing sets into a diagram. Upload an image and link your existing terms to locations in the image.

Study diagrams in engaging ways

Once you’ve created a diagram, you can study it with the activities and games you know and love. Studying with the new Learn allows you to learn with an adaptive study plan that will get you test-day ready. Or, quiz yourself and compete for the best time in a round of Match.

If you’re studying a set that has terms, definitions and diagram locations, the study modes will cycle through all the combinations: locations and terms, terms and definitions, definitions and images, and more. You can also focus on certain combinations by adjusting settings in each study mode's options.

Upgrade to unlock advanced diagram creation

Diagrams are free for both students and teachers to create, but upgrading to Quizlet Plus or Quizlet Teacher unlocks advanced content creation tools including:

  • The ability to add more than eight locations to a diagram
  • The option to annotate a diagram with custom shapes
  • The option to copy and and customize any existing diagram

Explore diagrams

If you’re studying physiology or astronomy, geography or a foreign language, cell biology or really any subject with a visual learning component, diagrams give you new ways to practice and master what you’re learning! Explore our showcase of great diagram sets already created by other students and teachers on a variety of topics, or create a diagram of your own.

We’ll keep working on adding more helpful tools and functionality to Quizlet diagrams, so make sure to send us feedback as you continue to use this new feature.

Happy diagramming!

  2. Zachary_Zehring

    i wonder when the next Lunar Eclipse is gonna happen?

  3. SteveOpp

    nice

  4. starlight_ashes

    This looks really good- thanks for introducing it!

  5. haghvray0

    Awesome idea!!!!

  6. yayhooray PLUS

    Sweet, I've used PurposeGames before for this very thing, and I am excited to start using it in Quizlet!

  7. yayhooray PLUS

    Also, thanks for adding Quizlet Learn to the website.

    *goes to store and buys a pair of glasses*
    *comes back*
    *takes off glasses* GREAT SCOTT!!!!! THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING!!!!

  9. Jamiebeachgirl

    Awesome. And, it is cool how God made the eclipse.

  10. Nurk1n

    HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLPPPPP!!!!!!
    I'm trying to make a diagram, but when I try putting an image on there or dragging and dropping, nothing happens. Somebody help!!!!!!

  11. martysonke PLUS

    I did this the hard way when I put together a Quizlet class for both Anatomy and Physio. Luckily I was able to find pictures of structures where someone had pointed an arrow to each part we were required to know. In Anatomy we were graded on spelling and I used the learn function. Got an A in both Anatomy and Physio using Quizlet's based completely off the class I was taking.

  12. TommyLawless PLUS

    A leap forward for Quizlet - truly an excellent addition.

  13. Margarita345

    This is a really cool idea Quizlet. Great job! It seems super helpful for everyone involved

  14. ahmad_massad PLUS

    This is an amazing idea Quizlet, i just wish that you can add more than just one image in a set. Like if i have to study anatomy, there will be plenty of structures to study for one topic so i'd need more than just one image.

  15. Jacob_Roller PLUS

    Took you guys a while, but yeah. These are the kinds of things Quizlet needs if you want it to become more popular. Good work here.

  16. Mrt3345

    Ay! Thank you so much Quizlet team.

  17. maxjaffe192

    hi everyone i am new
    at this

  18. BlakeAlley PLUS

    Honestly, probably one of the best updates on the platform! I'm glad I have Quizlet Plus...

  19. qztan

    Yaaay! Finally, we can get use and appreciate Quizlet more. :)

  20. ConnorM71

    Nice

  21. phimai

    wowwwww, yahh <3

  22. abiddlebug

    agreed, great update

  23. helkins2

    This new tool is awesome!

  24. JuanCarlosRedBird

    I will be studying biology soon, and I know that this will be very helpful. Thanks a lot, Quizlet!

  25. maracello

    Wonderful! Thanks!

  26. hkim24captainphasma

    Thank Quizlet!

  27. EmptyM

    Cool, but it's too bad that I have to upgrade to have more than 8 locations in my diagram . . .

  28. MystaryPi

    Awesome!

  29. kishore17

    Coool! But 8 locations in a single diagram and therefore set is kinda bad.

  30. Takethechallenge

    I love the idea! However, I feel that we who don't have quzlet plus should be able to at LEAST do more than twelve points. 30 would be fine. Other than that, I LOVE the idea! The functionality and integration is spot on. Also, I would like integration into other functions of quizlet. Thank you SO MUCH for diagrams!

    --Takethechallenge

    P.S. Here are the links to my diagrams:

  31. joe71

    Sounds Great! Ive tried making one but the pic won't load...

  32. Mia_Parker1221

    Is it only for plus users? Sounds great though I'm learning about life science this year and should be a big help

  33. DrunkCloud PLUS

    Awesome Feature!

  34. DrunkCloud PLUS

    It will be better with Long-term learning support.

  35. joe71

    Is This Only for Plus Users? cuz if it is 34.99/Year IS NOT CHEAP!!!

  36. Lee_Brian_

    you can tell in the video the guy is typing but the diagram says hes moving his mouse slowly over a button

  37. lidia_mills6 PLUS

    Its great! I need to get more familiar. Thanks.

  38. ke39

    great update

  39. Jones_Junior

    Creative idea!!

  40. Melodie_Ann_Brook

    It's awesome! I'm actually learning! Thanks so much!

  41. niran24 PLUS

    Wow

  42. abiddlebug

    this is kinda confusing to me but Quizlet helps

  45. Nefretiri5

    thank you!!!!

  46. stevnuniverse PLUS

    i always get excited about new features,, this is such a good idea

  47. Mrs_AlyK

    I cant add text to the point. Cross Hair pointer stays on and if I click on the term section for the point it just picks another point on the picture. Help!

  48. Ooi-SK

    superb awesome! it is so cool with diagrams and it makes learning fun and easy! BUT with only 8 points for FREE user, is kinda limited for us as $$$ for plus is not cheap for teacher who is living outside US ya. I wonder can quilt offer different price for different country teacher?

  49. SupremeLeaderCarden

    lit

  50. Seabird2001

    Thanks quizlet, this is great!

  51. niran24 PLUS

    Can't able to add more than one image

  52. Janet_Ott TEACHER

    I can't find the blur tool, so I can't add diagrams with words already on them. Frustrating. Is this a mac thing?

  53. laura_oppenheimer STAFF

    Hi Janet - it's in the upper right corner. If you still can't find it, drop our team a not through the help center and we can take a look!

  54. Jennifer_McGoun

    Can you add more than one diagram to a set?

  55. Ryan_Ridout TEACHER

    Definitely would like to see more than one diagram to a set!

  56. kspace

    Love the concept and idea, but would like to see this feature opened up to students younger than 13 and available on the app. I teach 6th graders in a one to one with iPads school. My sixth graders could not create a diagram because they were not 13. I would certainly use diagraming in my Social Studies class if it were open to younger students too.

  57. zanytrollmaster66

    hello i want custom shapes for free when studying things like countries is is hard to click on little dots

  58. Matt_Brown41 TEACHER

    This is an excellent addition, and thanks to all who developed it!. I plan to use it immediately with my AP psychology students.

    I developed a set of maps for my history students in Google Draw, that allowed students to drag and drop labels to their correct locations.. This proved very effective indeed. Perhaps Diagram might be expanded to allow drag and drop capabilities, too. Additionally, if drag-and-drop labeling were combined with Google Live, my 8th graders would be squealing with delight while they competed!

    Best wishes,
    Matt

  59. sbuddai3 PLUS

    It would be very helpful to be able to include multiple diagrams of a similar topic in the same set (for ex. 3 diagrams for spinal cord cross section, spinal segment, and vertebral column divisions in the same set), could you develop functionality to do so?

  60. selene_rubino PLUS

    Seconding sbuddai3's comment. Would love to see multiple diagram functionality

  61. Erica_Bowman

    I LOVE this feature! I recommend this site/app to everyone I know.

  62. Becca_Elliott4

    My friend and I have the same account type, but she can have twelve points and I can have the regular eight. Is there a way to get access to more without paying?

  63. Fernanda_Garcia6 PLUS

    I would like to add more that 1 diagram per set!! Pleasee

  64. alex_monaghan PLUS

    More than one diagram per set, for the same reasons as sbuddai3 - hard to get all the anatomy covered by an image in one plane

  65. CitrusEscape PLUS

    Please add a feature for more than one diagram in a set. A lot of us are visual learners so we need to see a lot of images to learn.

  66. Meghan_DeWaele PLUS

    Hi, Im trying to use this feature and my images won't upload?????? I paid for quizlet and it still won't work

  67. Abbyfran123 PLUS

    How am I supposed to fill in my diagram once I have created it?
    I added it to my set but when I go to study it will not let me click on it. Please help

  68. Benjamin_Lei_Tang

    I just need to know how to delete a diagram...

  69. Sarah_Farmer11 PLUS

    I agree with the others, we need more than one diagram per set. If creating study modules for a chapter, more than one image is needed. Thanks so much!

  70. GRN3500GTT PLUS

    I agree with the rest, multiple diagrams will make quizlet the best study resource since... well... quizlet. You guys really nailed it with diagrams though sure beats labeling a picture A-? and uploading it a million times with the letter as the question and then having to lock out all option other than multiple choice........ those were dark times!

  71. Username486 PLUS

    First off, thank you so much, this is an amazing feature. I have been using it for every set!

    I would really love the option to add multiple definitions to one point on a diagram, or the inverse, one definition to multiple points. I am using quizlet for biology, and multiple points per definition would be useful when labeling structures in different animals.

    I also second the multiple diagrams per set!

    Thanks again for this awesome feature!

  72. alexis_dorlon8 PLUS

    I think you should be able to add more than one diagram per set too! Studying anatomy you can't see all the aspects of a diagram in one picture so it is best to be able to add multiple.

  73. Pebble_Johnson TEACHER

    I would like to have a study set with just diagrams. It would be nice to have more than one diagram per set

  74. charlotteelogan PLUS

    I would like to be able to add more than one diagram per set. Also would like to be able to test myself with the diagram through the ‘learn’ aspect of sets as currently it just tests me on the text involved in the diagram and not the diagram itself.
    Also while I am commenting, it would be amazing to be able to create subfolders within folders as it would really help me organise my study sets better!
    Thank you!
