We have been needing a lot of flashcard work at our studio lately. I thought I’d take a minute and review some sites that you can practice your flashcards on the computer. I still don’t have one site that I am in love with, but if someone finds a better one, please let me know.
Soundfeelings has great graphics and cool but annoying sounds. I would love this little flash program if I clicked on the keyboard rather than have to find the letter. I also liked how simple it is to select the correct level.
Netrover has a good selection of cards. Two things I really like about this one is that you can download it, and that it gives immediate audio feedback. I don’t like that you only type answers rather than using a keyboard.
Music cards has an okay selection. It is more like having actual physical flashcards than a cool online version. I like the rollovers for the answers more than some of the other sites, and I like the selection. It is not the easiest site to use, and I’d like a little sound.
Classics for kids is one of my favorite sites for kids. I think it is fun for younger kids to drag and drop the names, and I like the word usage, but again, I’d like to use an actual keyboard. Better for little kids.
Flashcard Exchange has some great content. I found the site a little difficult to navigate. This again is more like a traditional paper flashcard than I was looking for, and no sound. I did like the study techniques available and the content. Watch out for really large groups of flashcards.
My winner for today is from funbrain. I like the site in general for learning all types of subjects, and this site actually lets you play the piano note as you look at the flash card. The one MAJOR complaint I have is that the keyboard is far too small. If they could make the keyboard larger, and add the tones this is what I would use.
