Dressed Flashcard Examples
I have some real examples of flashcards I have made with my studetns. See the pages below to see examples of well-dressed flashcards.
USE KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS!!! I can’t emphasize this enough. Keyboard shortcuts will help you make flashcards MUCH FASTER. Learning keyboard shortcuts requires practice. Practice using keyboard shortcuts every time you make a flashcard. This is a very good habit to develop. You can see the keyboard shortcuts in the tutorial video. Here is a list of the common keyboard shortcuts you can use when making flashcards:
- Ctrl+C: Copy text or an image
- Ctrl+V: Paste text or an image
- Ctrl+A: highlight all the text, all cards, etc.
- Ctrl+Z: Undo (if you make a mistake)
- Ctrl+Y: Redo
- Alt+Tab: quickly switch between different windows
- Tab: jump to the next field/box in the card template
- Ctrl+Enter: Finish/Add note
- Double Click (on a word): highlight a word
