Step 4 – Give your flashcard deck a good title
Give a good title for your flashcard deck which reflects the topic of your flashcard deck. I’m going to name this as “Software Engineering” since I’m creating a deck of flashcards regarding software engineering for my colleagues.
Step 5 – Create a flashcard
Now it’s time to create your first flashcard. A flashcard has a title (this can be a question or a topic). I will create a question called What is a software process?
Below the question, or topic I can give the answer, or more information regarding the topic. Since this is a question, I’m going to enter the answer.
Step 6 – How to format your flashcard
It’s really simple to format your flashcard text, you can bold, italic, or underline, create headings and subheadings etc.
This can be easily done by using a typing system called mark-down. We are hard at work in creating a simpler editor, which you will be able to use soon. But till then you can use markdown to simply format your text.
And once you get used to it, you will realise that using markdown is simpler than your thought, if you are coming from Reddit, you might be already good at markdown.
You can see how your flashcard looks like by clicking the Preview button. This is how your students or colleagues will see the flashcard when they open it. That means they won’t be seeing your markdown syntax, but they will be seeing a rendered flashcard.
You can also use markdown to include any image you want.

If you want to include a link you can simply paste that link and it will be automatically converted in to a clickable link when viewing the flashcard.
