What is Quizlet and how can I use it?

Last Updated: Oct 03, 2018 01:53PM PDT

Anyone can use Quizlet to study and learn content created by other users, or to create your own custom study sets. You can also share sets with friends, classmates or your students.

Getting started on Quizlet

The best way to get started on Quizlet as a student or a teacher is to search for sets made by other Quizlet users. Students and teachers create new study sets all the time, so it's quite likely that you'll be able to find what you're looking for. 

To find study sets, select the magnifying glass icon at the top of any page on Quizlet. Then, type in your subject or the name of the exam you're studying for and press Enter to see a list of results. 

You'll see a preview of the first four terms in each set on the search results page. To see the full set, select the title to view all terms and definitions on the set page. You can also open the Options  menu to sort search results by relevancy or creation date. 

Creating your own content

If you're looking to study something very specific, or would like to share content you create with a group of classmates or students, you may want to create your own sets rather than study those made by others. In order to create sets, you'll first need to sign up for an account. 

You can create sets with text, add images (users with free Quizlet accounts can add images from our gallery; upgraded users can choose from our gallery or upload their own) or create a diagram set

Quizlet for teachers

There are lots of great resources for teachers looking to use Quizlet with their students in the "For teachers" section of our Help Center. A good place to start is our Teacher Quick-start Guide, written specifically for teachers who are new to Quizlet and looking to get things set up for their students quickly and efficiently. 

You can take a deeper dive into Quizlet's core functionality and get an overview of many of our tools by watching recordings of training webinars we've delivered in the past here

Unlocking extra features

While you can do a lot with a free Quizlet account, we offer two subscription packages Quizlet Plus for students and Quizlet Teacher for teachers — that enable you to create more engaging content, study ad-free on the Quizlet website and mobile apps and customize your study or teaching experience.
