  • 1. Quizlet
    Flashcard central
    By Amber Wilson
  • 2. How Quizlet Came About
    “My mission for Quizlet is to make learning vocabulary not a chore. I know a lot of teachers assign vocabulary to students, but few students actually "absorb" words into their vocabularies after they take their test, which kind of defeats the purpose, right? So Quizlet is my response - it aims to make learning fun, thus make learning effective. At the very least, it can help students do better on quizzes and tests even if they don't fully "absorb" their words” Andrew Sutherland, creator of Quizlet (Age 15)
