Flashcards (3)

What Are Online Flashcards?

One of the most popular study methods is using Online Flashcards. If you have never created a Flashcard deck before, here’s a quick guide to help you get started:

What are Online Flashcards?

Online Flashcards, also known as as notecards or study cards, are two-sided cards that are used to study as they help improve memory and retention. They are mainly used to remember key facts, concepts, dates, formula, vocabulary but they can be applied in a number of areas.

How Do Online Flashcards Work?

On the first or front side, you insert a question, word, image etc. and on the reverse you add the explanation, translation, synonym or any other information you want to memorise. The possibilities are endless!

Below is an example of the front and reverse of a flashcard. On the front, there is an image with a natural phenomenon and the reverse shows its name, the Aurora Borealis:

How To Use Online Flashcards to Study

Once you have created your flashcard deck based on your study notes, you can review the cards one-by-one, guessing the answer on the reverse based on the information on the front of the card. As you go through this process, you can use the thumbs up, thumbs down buttons to indicate which cards you know or don’t know. The method is very simple and helps you memorise your learning curriculum easier and quicker.

Why Use Online Flashcards

online flashcard makerIn the past, Flashcards were made of paper or card but the widespread availability of technology means that you can now create and use virtual study resources which can be easily shared and won’t be lost or broken.

ExamTime’s online Flashcard tool allows you to access the study notes you create online from anywhere, on any device. In this way, you can take advantage of your downtime by reviewing your notes and maximising your study time.

Also, it’s very easy to mark to mark which Flashcards you know, flip all cards in your deck, reorder and update your Online Flashcards with ExamTime.

If you have not tried ExamTime’s Flashcard tool before, you can start creating your first deck here.

Sharing your Mind Map

When sharing your Mind Map with your ExamTime friends, you can either share as a read-only or a ‘copy and edit’ version. The read-only option gives your friend a snapshot of your resource; they see everything but cannot add anything new. The ‘copy and edit’ option gives them a copy, which they can then edit themselves.

Sharing Mind Maps

This works the same for sharing with groups; instead of picking friends, you pick the group or groups you want to share with!

You can also share your Mind Map outside of ExamTime using the Social Sharing and Email Sharing options. If you prefer, you can embed your resources in a webpage or blog by inserting the embed code in the HTML section of your site.

Sharing Mind Maps Socially

Using these techniques you will be able to create your own Mind Maps in no time. Here is one we made earlier:

How Do I Add An Image To A Mind Map?

When you are in ‘edit mode’ you will see a grey navigation bar at the top of the screen. Look for the symbol of a landscape picture.

Click here to add your image.

Mind-Map-Image

When you add an image it will not be connected to any node. You will be able to insert it anywhere on the canvas. If you want, you can place a node in front or behind the image to make it look like it is connected.

The order in which items appear in a Mind Map depends on the order they were created. So if you want a node to overlay an image it needs to be created after the image is uploaded. Conversely, if you want it to appear behind the image the node needs to be created before the image is uploaded.

Online Symbols (1)

How Do I Enter Mathematical Symbols and Equations?

ExamTime uses the universal mark-up language LaTex to input Mathematical Symbols and Equations.

You can enter Mathematical Symbols and Equations anywhere in Flashcards, Quizzes and Notes but only in the annotations( not in the nodes) on Mindmaps. This is due to how our Mindmap tools renders text.

To enter mathematical symbols you need to insert the code within either:

\( …\) or \[ …\]

The \(…\) is for inline text

While \[…\] is for stand alone text

Below we have outlined the text needed for the most common types of Mathematical symbols and equations.

Note: All these examples appear in the stand alone text format i.e. \[…\]. If you wish to include the symbols within text you will need to use the inline bracket set of \(…\)

When it comes to maths it’s always best to start with the Greeks…

Pro Tips:

Right click on any symbols you see in ExamTime and you’ll be given options to see it in LaTex code. If you’re copying and pasting code in from elsewhere make sure and ‘paste as plain text’.

Having LaTex in a resources title will create very ugly links if you share that resource. Only enter LaTex as a title if it’s necessary!

Pinning (3)

What is a Pin?

Imagine that you have found a great learning resource that you would like to check again in the future. Since you did not create the resource, you cannot move it onto one of your subjects.

Pins exist for those cases. By clicking on the “Pin to…” option, while on a resource’s view mode, you are effectively saving a link to it, within your preferred subject, for later reference.

Pinning a learning resource

That way, you will easily find it any time!

Where Can I Find My Pins?

Your Pinned Resources will be within the Subject that you assigned them to, when you initially pinned them.

You will be able to differentiate your pinned resources from the rest because they display a “Pin” icon on the bottom right-hand side corner of a resource tile.

Pinned learning resources

How Do I Remove a Pin?

To remove a pin from a learning resource, go to the resource’s view mode and click on the “Move to…” icon.

Unpinning a resource

On the emerging pop-up window, you will notice an “Unpin” button. Click on it and the resource will be unpinned from your Subject. You can also decide to move it to another Subject instead.

Play Mode (3)

What is Play Mode?

Play Mode is a quick way of turning your resources into a presentation. This is perfect for students or teachers who want to quickly recap a resource before an exam or while studying.

In Play Mode: How Do I Play a Mind Map?

Play mode is incredibly easy to use. When you are in view mode, you will see a little play button in the center of the frame. Clicking the play button will obviously set things in motion but you can also do a step by step play-through by clicking the arrow buttons on either side.

mind maps controls

You can also adjust the speed at which it plays by adjusting the control to the left (yes, the little turtle and hare). I told you it was easy!

In Play Mode: How Does My Mind Map Decide Which Node To Play First?

Once you know the logic behind how Mind Maps play you’ll easily be able to adjust it to suit your needs.

A Mindmap plays the central node first and then plays the first layer of nodes. It starts at 9 o’clock and works clockwise around the central node. Once it plays each node in the inner layer it moves on to the next layer. Once it has shown all nodes it then shows the images you have inserted in the same way.

Quizzes (1)

How Do I Create a Quiz?

Click on the ‘create’ option and you’ll be brought straight to a new quiz screen.

Online quiz makerTool to create online quizzes

A Quiz is a series of questions. As such, when making a quiz, you’ll be asked to create questions which will become a part of your Quiz.

Quiz Settings

Before your start adding your questions, select your preferred quiz settings.

Quiz settings

For example, add a quiz timer to put a time limit on each question. You can also weigh your questions; one question can be worth 5 points , while another only 2. This makes your quizzes more realistic and more like a real exam. You can find these options under both, your question and quiz settings.

Adding Questions to your Quiz

To add questions to your quiz, first select the Type of Question that you would like to include in your quiz (you can mix different types on the same one).

You have the option to choose between the following type of questions:

  • Multiple Choice: questions with only 1 correct answer
  • Checkboxes: questions with 1 or more correct answers
  • True or False: question is either true or false

Enter your question and answers and mark the correct one/s. You can also add an explanation by clicking on Add Explanation.
Correct answers quiz answers

Once you are happy with your Question and Answers, you will be able to change the question’s score value and decide whether you want to shuffle the order in which answers will appear on each attempt.

Quiz question settings

Of course, you can also add images to both your questions and answers. This makes your quizzes more engaging and rewarding. You can find the add image option located on the bottom right, under every question/answer.

Your question is now ready. Click “Save and Add Another Question” or “Save and Return to Question List” if your quiz is complete .
Add quiz questions

When you’re done you can play the Quiz. You need to select the answer and then confirm your selection before moving on the next question. When you have finished answering all questions you can review all your answers again before seeing your results.

Tracking Performance

The quizzes also allow you to track your performance with a certain quiz over time.
performance tracking

Click on “View Performance Stats” to view a chart with your progress or “Global Attempts” to see how your perfomance compares to that of other users.

Using these techniques you will be able to create your own Quiz in no time. Here is one we made earlier!

Resources (1)

Can I Share A Private Resource With A Friend?

Yes, a private resource can be shared with a friend on ExamTime. When you are inside the resource you wish to share click on the share icon on your dashboard.

Share Icon

 

From there you will be given the following options.

 

 

share examtime

Click the ‘Share on ExamTime’ button followed by ‘Share With Friends’

Select one of your friends on ExamTime and your resource is now shared.

Study Calendar (2)

How Do I Create a Calendar?

Step 1: Open Your Calendar

When you log in to ExamTime, click on “Calendar” to open your online Calendar tool:
Online calendar

Step 2: Become Familiar with your Calendar

The Calendar will always open in the weekly view. This will show the present week with the current day highlighted in a light yellow.

Along the left-hand side of the page you will see a list of all your Subjects. If you don’t have any Subjects created yet, we suggest you go to your Subjects and create some.
Creating subjects

On the weekly view you will see two blue lines – these highlight the most active times of the day for you. These are set between 9am to 5pm as default and can be edited to suit your individual needs (see Step 7)

In the top right-hand corner you can switch between the weekly and monthly view. Once you have your bearings, you can start using your ExamTime revision timetable template and create your own personal study planner.ExamTime Online Calendar

Step 3: Drag and Drop Your Subjects

You can drag and drop your Subjects (listed on the left-hand side) anywhere on your revision timetable. If you drag the Subject into the top box it becomes an ‘all-day event’. If you want a more nuanced Calendar though, you can drag it down to a specific time period.

Simply click anywhere on the Calendar itself and this will open a box which will allow you to edit the options manually (see Step 4 for more info). If you have used a calendar in Microsoft Outlook before, you will find using our study planner will be a similar experience.

Step 4: Set Recurring Events

When you place the Subject on the revision timetable template, you’ll be presented with more options such as:

  • How long it will last. You need to enter a start and end time
  • If you want to change the event name. For example, if you don’t just want to see an ‘English’ block you can rename it as ‘Study Macbeth’ or ‘Revise Sylvia Plath Poems’
  • Whether it is an all-day event or otherwise
  • Whether it will appear on your Timeline
  • Whether this event recurs every week or if it is just an ad-hoc occurrence
  • Which category it belongs e.g. class, free-time, homework
  • Any personal notes on the event

These are all important options to have but one of the most useful is the ‘Recurring’ option. Clicking this allows you to set whether that particular study block recurs every day, week, month or year. This can be a valuable time-saver and help plan your study quicker and easier in the long run.

recurring events on calendar

Step 5: Populate the Monthly View

Once you have a full weekly study timetable completed, you should plan your learning timetable for the month. When you know which events are going to be recurring every week. Switch to your Monthly view by clicking the tab in the top right-hand corner.

Depending on how busy your month is, you may want to add more blocks here.

Online calendar monthy view

Step 6 Finalise

Once you have populated your revision timetable template, go back over everything and ensure it all makes sense to you. Most importantly, make sure it is realistic and achievable. This means: 1) that you have the time to actually do the study you say you will do and 2) that you have study goals in place that you can achieve. You should also take account of hobbies you have such as football training or piano lessons! This study planner gives you the opportunity to take account of your free time and not feel guilty about it! For some tips on how to plan your study better, check out our study guide.

Step 7 Fine Tune

Everyone is different and will have different needs when it comes to studying. You can fine tune your revision timetable by checking out our features such as subject breakdown or changing the hours of your default view. The button for your ‘Subject Breakdown’ (see image below) is located under your Subjects on the left-hand side.

You can see further Calendar options by going into your Account, this is located in the top right-hand corner drop-down.
Calendar breakdown

Step 8 Constantly Re-assess

You may think you can rest easy once you put in the initial effort, but unfortunately this isn’t true. Realistically, you will not rigidly stick to your study plan, you’ll miss some study periods you had planned sometime, or be late for another, or get sick for a day or sometimes just get tired and collapse on your couch and watch bad TV ( it happens!). The key to avoiding procrastination when it comes to studying is making your revision timetable as flexible as possible to allow for these inevitable mishaps!

Our study tool allows you to quickly update plans so you don’t miss more study. If you find that you are consistently missing study blocks then maybe you should reorganise your Subjects to better suit you.

Step 9 Print/Export and Study!

While nothing is ever perfect, there comes a time when you simply have to print it off. Click on the “Download PNG” to get a snapshot of your calendar. Then print your timetable and then stick it on your wall or in your notebook– where ever suits. If you want to save the environment though you can export your calendar as an iCal file. This file can be used on pretty much any device and imported in to your calendar there. Which ever option you choose you’ll still have to sit down and start studying!

 

How Do I Export My ExamTime Calendar to Other Devices?

Although the ExamTime Calendar tool is always accessible from anywhere, as long as you are online and signed into ExamTime, you may want to export your calendar entries to other mobile devices that also have a calendar function.

That is why we have added a function that will allow you to export your ExamTime Calendar using iCal (.ics file), which you can then import into your other device.

Exporting an online calendar

In order to export your ExamTime Calendar, follow the simple steps below:

1. Go to your ExamTime Calendar

2. Click on the “Export iCal” option on the top left-hand side of your screen

3. You will receive an email to the email account you provided when you signed up to ExamTime. If you signed up using your Facebook account, you will receive the email to the account associated with your Facebook profile.

4. Open the email and save the attached .ics file using the device you want to save your Calendar onto.

5. Follow the instructions for importing iCal provided by your device’s manufacturer. Generally, they will ask you to save the file first and then go to your device’s calendar settings to access the “import iCal” option.

Study Groups (2)

How Do I Create a Group?

What is the Difference Between a Public and a Private Resource?

A Public resource is discoverable. This means that if someone has the unique public URL, they will be able to view the resource. A Private resource is locked-down; only you can see it.

How to Switch from Public to Private or Viceversa

When in View Mode, you can see whether a resource is Public or Private by looking into the resource’s information area, next to the resource’s title.

public or private resource

You can then turn a resource public or private by clicking on “Edit Details” and selecting your preferred option.
Private and public learning resources

Alternatively, you can click on the ‘Share’ option (visible once you click on “Toggle Controls” on the left-hand side) and select either the ‘Make Private’/’Make Public’ option.
View mode private

Every ExamTime user has the option of searching the ExamTime library– this is the collection of all public resources. Others may study using your resources but you can use theirs. We think this approach is best as it allows for the cross-pollination of ideas and viewpoints which are beneficial for better learning.

If you are on Edit mode, you also have the option to switch from one to the other by clicking on the “Make Private/Public button that you will find along the top of the page.
top menu private

What is the difference between a ‘read-only’ share and a ‘copy and edit’ share?

A read-only share is like a snap-shot of your resource— your friend can’t edit it, just view it. A ‘copy and edit’ share allows your friend ( or whoever you share it with) to take a copy of your resource and then edit it as they see fit.
Sharing resources with friends

A history of revisions will be shown so you’ll know who has edited what.

Tagging (2)

What is a Tag?

We have introduced ExamTime tags as a way of categorising your resources so that common topics and resources can be identified. By adding a tag to your resource, you can allow ExamTime to suggest similar public resources on that topic. This allows you to gain access to a wider range of relevant public content on ExamTime.

Tags can be added when you title your resource or by choosing the “edit details” button in view mode of the resource, see below:

Resource information

How Can I See Related Resources Created By Others?

ExamTime has a vast library of public learning resources. We have introduced tags to help you identify common/related resources. You can now add various tags to your resource which will act as a way of identifying related resources.

If you add a tag to a resource that has been used by another user, you will see similar resources on the “related” tab on the right-hand side of the screen on view mode.

Tags can describe the subject, exam or topic that you are studying/teaching. The more tags that you add to a resource, the more relevant content you will see.
