Boy did they get that one wrong!

Leading language reference site Dictionary.com announced the release of “Mobile Flashcards,” a mobile extension of their online Flashcards learning experience. With “Mobile Flashcards,” students of all ages can create mini study guides to help them learn and retain pertinent subject vocabulary. Having engaging learning tools available instantly can go a long way in helping to refresh subject material in the minds of easily distracted teenagers. Whether it’s preparing for the SAT’s or GRE, Flashcards by Dictionary.com has you covered. Browse through thousands of user created “decks” or customize and share your own decks by signing up for a free Dictionary.com account.

Features

  • Create your own or choose from over 70,000 flashcard decks
  • Customize your study by grade level, standardized test, or subject
  • Select your study method – audio pronunciation or definition matching
  • Sync your online and mobile app progress
  • Study offline – without an internet connection

According to Dictionary.com President Shravan Goli, this is just the beginning of what he hopes will evolve into a “total authoritative destination for word learning.”

“We are creating an environment that makes learning a lifestyle – a seamlessly blended online and mobile experience that integrates the thrill of word discovery into the student’s everyday life.”

Although school is just about ending for most students, Goli believes these tools to be an excellent way for students to remain engaged in their education during the summer months. And, while most students are enjoying their summer off, Dictionary.com will be hard at work preparing a full set of interactive features for the Fall semester of 2011. Mobile Flashcards for Android is available for free via the Android Market and is a great way to get a head start on next years vocabulary.
