All courses on BuildUp should include a series of Flashcards towards the very end of the module. Following the course content but in advance of the Course Review, the Flashcards act as a plenary; a reminder of the key learning points from the content before. Think of them as the bullet points to summarise a document.
We would encourage you to build 10 Flashcards using the Flashcard stack widget accessed via the Interactive section on the Blocks.
Here are two tips for creating Flashcards that your users will benefit from:
- Pick out the key learning from the module.
A top tip for this would be to revisit the module’s Learning Objectives (that should feature at the start of each module) and to align the Flashcards to those. This will ensure that the Flashcards act as a debrief; a way to highlight the key learning from the module, as well as allowing users to have an easily accessible refresher of what they have learnt before.
- Keep the Flashcards brief
Shorter, concise and well phrased statements using appropriate language will resonate far more than wordy, disjointed and overly technical chunks of text. Try crafting the statement so it is complete, and look to separate the statement at a suitable point where the user will want to turn it over and learn more…
