What is your opinion on TinyCards?
Duolingo has created a resource called TinyCards. Besides languages, you can learn about history, geography, biology, and just about everything else!!! Any user can create a 'deck' of cards which is then visible to all the other users.
How many Duolingo users use TinyCards? And what do you think of this resource? Also, any creators of 'decks' out there?
I'm not a fan - but it's not Tinycards themselves, it's flashcards in general. I think it's because I didn't learn to read English, my native tongue, using them. When I first met them, at 6 yo in Infant school, I thought (with the arrogance of extreme youth!) that they were stupid. I prefer to learn words in context. That preference is still with me.
I know lots of people find flash cards useful and I think TinyCards are a fabulous incarnation. I think is wonderful that people share their knowledge this way. I'm off to look at Elizabeth's deck in a moment.
Since TinyCards don't earn XP, and my time online is limited, I have tried them, but don't use them often.
