Memorize·It is a
multimedia flashcard application that allows you to create your own
decks of flashcards incorporating text, sound, pictures, and drawings.
Using several testing methods: multiple choice, true/false, type-in
and honor system, Memorize·It can be used for any subject
from preschool to medical school. Cards can be easily moved between
decks or copied to build new decks. Interactive quizzing with Memorize·It
automatically keeps track of the hardest cards and allows you to
focus on exactly what is hardest for you. Decks can be printed front
and back on five styles of perforated card stock paper. By using
Memorize·It you can study or teach any subject. Memorize·It
allows you to easily create the cards with exactly the information

this for only $25 (for a limited time - regularly $39).
If you've ever used flashcards
before and have something you need to learn quickly, then Memorize·It
is for you. The whole idea of learning is centered around repetition.
The more you practice something, the better you get and the more
you know about it. Memorize·It takes this idea to a whole
new level with the ability to consistently focus on the cards which
give you the most trouble.
a vital role in the retention of information. The Dana Foundation study on Better Teaching Through Brain Biology says "Without this step of converting new learning to long-term memory through repetition and elaboration, students are unlikely to be able to use it for a lifetime". The Role Of Repetition In Learning is not our site nor are we associated with them. It has links back to us and includes many other sources of information on the role repetition in learning. An Exam
preparation guide from the Kildare Nationalists also touches
on the importance of repetition and "practicing recall".
There are many other examples
of the importance of learning through repetition. In most cases the
process is to first write something down, then repeatedly review
it. The creation of the flashcards with Memorize·It is the
writing down part, and the quizzing and testing (repetition) is what
Memorize·It does best.

it didn't stop people from asking us for flashcards decks. We listened
and created thousands of flashcards we used to sell on a single cdrom called "Memorize·It
The Complete Collection". Those flashcards are now available for free download at FlashcardStation.com.
Flashcards in Memorize·It
come in four different types.
- Honor System
- You answer the
card aloud or to yourself, turn the card over to see if you
got the answer correct. Memorize·It asks you if you
answered the card correctly. The computer uses your answer
to score the card as hard or easy.
- Multiple Choice
- You are allowed
to enter up to 5 choices (A-E). The computer automatically
keeps track of the card score as you quiz.
- True False
- You create a true
false question and the computer automatically keeps track
of the card score as you quiz.
- A one or two word
answer to a given question. The answer must be typed exactly
as it appears, or it will be scored incorrectly.
flashcards are actually four sided.
How can a piece of paper
have anything more than two sides you ask? Well, when you print
the cards, they are two sided, but every electronic Memorize·It
flashcard has a hint and a why card as well. You create the hint
and why card exactly as you would the front and the back of the
card. While quizzing, you are given the choice to look at the hint
while you are looking at the front of the card. You are also given
the choice of seeing the why card while looking at the answer.
Quizzing and Testing
There are several quizzing
methods you can use in Memorize·It.
- Quiz All
- This will cycle
through all the cards in the deck no matter what your score
on that card. Memorize·It will continue to keep track
of which cards give you the most trouble.
- Quiz Medium/Hard/By Percentage
- Cards will be selected
by their difficulty giving you more repetition on the hardest
- This is a flag which
you can turn on which will cycle the cards randomly instead
of in order. If you do quiz in order, you can simply shuffle
the deck of cards and any time.
- Auto Quiz
will cycle through the cards on a time delay of your choice.
Once you get too tired of answering the questions, just turn
on auto quiz and watch the cards cycle. We call this quiz by
- Quick Test
- This allows you to
test yourself on the cards in any deck. Once you have answered
all the questions, press the Grade button. The window
will change to show you a report on how well you did on the
- The T-Scope design
is based on a device called a tachistoscope. The earliest
reference found for this device was 1890. Since that
time it has been primarily used by research psychologists studying
education. It is a device used to present objects to
the eye for a brief measured period, e.g., a fraction of a
second. One of its principal applications is the measurement
of the amount of detail that can be comprehended by a single
viewing. You can set the delay and time between cards
as if you have one of these specialized devices. We have
taken up the tachistoscope flag and added T-Scope capability
to Memorize·It flashcards. We believe it is the
first, and only, software tachistoscope.

is a great electronic flashcard system, that doesn't
mean most of us keep our computer with us and turned on 24 hours
a day. Memorize·It includes a flexible printing system which
will allow you to take your flashcards with you and quiz yourself
The most popular printing
style is to print your cards on perforated paper. This cheapest is business
card paper and index
card paper, but sizes go as large as post
If perforated paper is out
of your budget, then you can have Memorize·It draw the cut
lines when it prints. You can print on a heavier stock paper and
cut out the cards with scissors.
Printing front and back
typically takes two passes and requires that you under stand which
side of the paper your print prints on from the paper tray. Once
you know this, just tell Memorize·It to print all the fronts
of the cards. Take that paper, turn it over and put it back into
the paper tray. Tell Memorize·It to print out all the backs
of the cards. Separate the cards and your done.
The creator of Memorize·It, Wood
Harter, wrote this application for himself to study art history
in college. Later he created a version with sound (and graphics!)
so he could study German vocabulary while living in Germany in
1991. He's since used this for spelling words with younger family
members, and most recently for the GRE.
We have reports of students
around the world using Memorize·It for every kind of subject
