The flashcard module allows editing and playing flashcards. Flashcards are a "memory training" device that uses the concept of repetition. Checking a flashcard deck will present the student the couples of relationships to be memorized. More often the associations are reviewed, deeper the memorization will be engraved into our memorial circuits.

The flashcard module has been useful for formative assessment of anatomy, histology and pathology concepts, definitions and images in the teaching of human and veterinary medicine at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
