About Our Service
Our WazzCards website is a learning tool that allows for the creation and easy sharing of flashcards to encourage effective learning, not just rote memorization. It requires no downloads or application installs, just bookmark the link: https://www.wazzcards.com/profile/.
Learning depends on memory. When you learn something new, that bit of information is held in short-term memory for a few dozen seconds, after which it quickly disappears unless you make a conscious effort to move it to long-term memory. Flashcards have been proven to increase rate of learning by engaging active recall; thus, improving the retention of critical information.
WazzCards comes out-of-the-box with curated subject decks, but its main feature is allowing registered users to create their own decks based on their individual learning styles and on what they perceive as critical information. They can then share these decks with peers and do collaborative learning and reviews.
WazzCards uses the scientifically-proven spaced repetition technique to train your brain to retain important information.
