New Flashcards activity!
Try Buzz's new Flashcards activity!
Flashcards are non-gradable activities designed to allow learners to review content and help them commit it to memory.
Here's how they work:
- Authors can add text or an image to each side of each card, and can choose to display them as a Grid or a Stack.
- Learners see the front of the card, and try to remember, imagine, guess, etc, what's on the other side.
- Flashcard activities are marked complete when a learner has flipped all of the cards in the activity.
