Frequently Asked Questions

Creating Resources

How Do I Create a Mind Map?

The button to create resources is located in the left-hand side of the top menu on GoConqr. Click on it and select the Mind Map option. You’ll then be brought straight to a blank Mind Map canvas.

If you create a Mind Map, it will automatically be saved to your Unassigned subject. However, if you are within a subject when you decide to create a Mind Map, it will be saved in this subject automatically.

Creating your Mind Map

When you first enter a Mind Map you will see your central node and a Menu bar with many options to customise your map.


Clicking the central node and typing will automatically rename the Mind Map. If you drag the “+” icon out from the node you can create another node. This will be connected to the central node by a thin strand.


Customising your Mind Map


In the menu bar you will find several controls to edit your text; you can make it bigger, bold, italic or change the font type of the node and any nodes that are attached to it.

You can also change the colour of a node. If you want, you can apply these changes to the outline of a node only, all child nodes and enable a gradient filter.

To delete a node and any nodes connected to it, select the node and click on the trash can icon. You will be asked to confirm this selection.

The paperclip icon allows you to attach another resource to a Mind Map node for easy access. You can also attach an Annotation, which is a short note. An Annotation can only be accessed through the node it’s attached to. Click on the little notepad icon in your Mind Map to access an Annotation.Annotations on Mind Maps
Zooming in/out and Inserting Images

In the bottom left-hand of the screen you will see a slider that will allow you to zoom in and out.Zooming in and out in Mind Maps

You can also insert images by clicking on the corresponding button in the top menu bar.14


You can share, copy, print and edit flowcharts in the same way as other GoConqr resources, by clicking the actions iconactions

Using these techniques you will be able to create your own Mind Maps in no time. Here’s a Mind Map we made earlier!


How Do I Create a Flowchart?

The button to create resources is located in the left-hand side of the top menu on GoConqr. Click on it and select the Flowchart option. You’ll then be brought straight to a blank Flowchart canvas.

Creating your flowchart

  1. Drag and drop a shape from the left hand side, then hover over it and blue block arrows will appear around it.
  1. (a) Click an arrow and a node of the same shape will appear, or (b) Type some text/or change colour the colour of the node, using the formatting bar on the top.
  1. Once you have more than one shape (either from the blue block arrows or another drag and drop), hovering over will also show small blue connection points. Hover over and click on a connection point to drag a connector arrow to the connection points on another shape.


Adding and formatting text

Add text by clicking on a node, or by dragging a text box from the left hand side. You can format the text using the buttons on the left side above the grid.


Advanced features

You can copy and paste or send nodes, images, or connection arrows  to the back or front of your flowcharts using these buttons:


You can also change the colour of nodes or the flowchart background. You can change the shape of and direction of the connections, and you can change the pathway of the connection, by clicking on the connector and moving the blue dot.



You can add images to your flowchart and place them in a node if you would like to connect them.


You can share, copy, print and edit flowcharts in the same way as other GoConqr resources, by clicking the actions icon.   actions

You can view an example of a flowchart here.

What Do Flowchart Symbols Mean?

You can be as creative as you like with our flowchart maker, but our tool is not just a set of pretty shapes. The shapes are actually symbols that have a particular meaning when used in a process or flow diagram. Flowcharts are often used in computer modelling and project management. This short guide explains how the symbols are frequently used.

starta Starting point of a process startexamples
terminatora The end point of a process terminatorexamples
eventa Used to illustrate a process, action, or operation process-examples
decisiona The ‘decision’ object is a question and the answers determine the arrows coming out of it. decisionexamples
preparationa Setting up for another step in the process preparation-examples
Indicates a step where two or more sub-lists or sub-processes become one.
Indicates delay in the process or  waiting period where no activity is done

You can see more examples in the GoConqr Guide to Flowcharts for Business and of course you can create your own flowcharts for free on GoConqr and share them with your friends and colleagues.

What ‘Actions’ can I do with a resource?

All GoConqr Resources – those that you’ve made yourself and those created by others give you access to the ‘Actions’ menu where you can print, share, edit and more – depending on your permissions.

When you find a resource by searching, or when you look in your own subject folder, hover over it and you will see two buttons: Actions and Info (Info gives you information including description, author, views and ratings).


When you are in view mode, or in edit mode of your own resource, you can access the Actions menu by clicking the symbol with a cog and a folder in the bar at the top of the page. actions

The actions you can do will depend on whether it is your resource or someone else’s, and the type of account that you have.


Edit: Allows you to edit the resource. You can only edit your own resource, however if the owner of the resource allows copies to be made, you can copy the resource and edit the copy.

Copy: Allows you to take a copy, if the author has permitted copies. A premium user may lock their resources so that other users cannot take copies.

Pin: Allows you to ‘pin’ a resource to one of your subject folders (or topics if you have specified them). You can then easily find the resource in the future. Pinning resources to your folder also helps us to suggest other relevant resources for you. You can see in ‘Info’ how many times a resource has been pinned by others.

Move: If you have created the resource, or already pinned it, this allows you to move it to a different subject or topic.

Post: This allows you to share a resource on Google, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, or to embed the resource in a blog or website. The resource must be public to do this.

Share: You can share resources that you have mad directly with friends on GoConqr, or you can share any public resource with groups that you are a member of.

Private Links: This is a GoConqr Campus feature that allows users to share resources privately with individuals who are no GoConqr members, provided they have this permission.

Reports: This is a GoConqr Campus feature that allows users to report on views and results of resources, provided they have have this permission.

Email: Allows you to send a link via email, including to a friend who is not a GoConqr member.

Print: Allows you to print you resource! (bear in mind that GoConqr is optimised for online experience).

Delete: Allows you to delete the resource.

How Do I Create a Flashcard Deck?

The button to create resources is located in the left-hand side of the GoConqr top menu. Click on it and select the Flashcards option. You’ll then be brought straight to a new Flashcard deck.

The first thing you will need to do to get started with your Flashcard deck is to give it a name. You can do this by clicking on the top bar where it says “Untitled”. A pop-up window will appear and you will be able to add a Title, Description and as many Tags as you want for your resource. You can also enable/disable notifications alerts related to your resource in the same area.

Creating your Flashcard Deck

When you are visiting the edit screen for your Flashcards, you will be presented with two boxes. The one on the left is for the front of the card; the one on the right is for the back of the card.

Click on the boxes and enter whatever content (text, image or both, including GIF files) you want and click ‘Add to Deck’. You will see the cards you enter appear below this. You can see more on how to add images to your Flashcards here.

Once here, they are automatically saved so don’t worry! You can enter up to 200 flash cards per deck.editing-flashcards

Styling your Flashcards

You can also apply several styles to your Flashcards. For example, you can change a card’s background or use different fonts types for your text. These styles can be applied separately to the front and the reverse. Please note that whenever
you apply a style to either side, this will be rolled over to all cards in the deck.

You can change the text/ image positioning on each card individually.

Playing your Flashcard Deck

When playing your Flashcard deck, click the on the next card to move forward using the arrows to go left or right, or click on the numbered circles above the cards to jump into a certain card. Turn a card over and shuffle the deck. You can also use keyboard shortcuts to navigate through your deck. The left and right arrow keys will move the deck and the space bar will turn a card over. You can use a touchscreen device to navigate the deck also.playing-flashcards

As you flick through your cards, you also have the option to mark each of them as “I know it/I don’t know it” using the thumbs up/down buttons, to Shuffle or to Flip the deck. When you get to the end of the deck you can see how many you knew. You also have the option to ‘Hide known cards”, so that the next time you view the Flashcards, you can test yourself just on what you still need to learn.


You can share, copy, print and edit flashcards in the same way as other GoConqr resources, by clicking the actions icon.     actions

How Do I Create a Quiz?

quiz-question-typesClick on the ‘create’ option and you’ll be brought straight to a new quiz screen. A Quiz is a series of questions. As such, when making a quiz, you’ll be asked to create questions which will become a part of your Quiz.

You can choose a variety of question types, as shown on the right, including options to fill in the blanks, and to label images.

You can use different question types in the same quiz. Each question type allows you to ask a question, provide multiple possible answers, and to provide an explanation of why the correct answer is correct, when viewing the answers at the end of the quiz.


Quiz Settings


Before your start adding your questions, select your preferred quiz settings.

You can chose to randomise the question order, whether you want users to be able to see the correct answers during and /or at the end of the quiz.

You can set a limit on the overall quiz time, or a limit per question. And you can chose a default score (usually 1).

You will have further opportunities to customise individual questions.

You can add images to questions and to answers. You can change the default score for an individual question using the settings cog on the question.

Quiz Results

At the end of taking a quiz you can view your results. You can review all your answers, or just the incorrect ones (provided the person who created the quiz allows this).


The quizzes also allow you to track your performance with a certain quiz over time.

Click on “View Performance Stats” to view a chart with your progress or “Global Attempts” to see how your performance compares to that of other users.quiz-performance







You can share, copy, print and edit quizzes in the same way as other GoConqr resources, by clicking the actions icon.     actions

How Do I Create a Slide Set?

The button to create resources is located in the left-hand side of the top menu on GoConqr. Click on it and select the Slide Set option. You’ll then be brought straight to a blank Slide deck. Click to insert a slide and you can choose from a variety of templates.


Choose the template that suits you best – we have  combinations that include media (images, video, audio), text, and other GoConqr resources.



You can choose a theme to alter the colour and design of the Slide Set.




Once you have entered content into the Slides, you will see formatting options, including font size, bullet points, and alignment. Hovering over these buttons will explain what they do.



You can share, copy, print and edit flowcharts in the same way as other GoConqr resources, by clicking the actions icon.     actions

How Do I Create a Note?

The create Note button is located in the “Create” drop-down menu. Click on this and you’ll be brought straight to a new Note canvas. Give your note a title and click ‘Add page’.

You can start typing straight away. There are numerous text formatting tools located in the toolbar.  You can also insert a link to an external site. notes-text-bar

You can also add video, images or embed a GoConqr resource.

How Do I Add An Image To A Mind Map?

When you are in ‘edit mode’ you will see a grey navigation bar at the top of the screen. Look for the symbol of a landscape picture.

Click here to add your image.insert-image

When you add an image it will not be connected to any node. You will be able to insert it anywhere on the canvas. If you want, you can place a node in front or behind the image to make it look like it is connected.

The order in which items appear in a Mind Map depends on the order they were created. So if you want a node to overlay an image it needs to be created after the image is uploaded. Conversely, if you want it to appear behind the image the node needs to be created before the image is uploaded.

What Resources Can be Embedded in my Online Note?

Along with text , you can insert other study resources created with GoConqr (Mind Maps, Flashcards, Quizzes, Flowcharts, Slides and Notes). Images and other multimedia resources (videos, sounds, presentations) can also be inserted into your Online Notes.

How Do I Enter Mathematical Symbols and Equations?

GoConqr uses the universal mark-up language LaTex to input Mathematical Symbols and Equations.

You can enter Mathematical Symbols and Equations anywhere in Flashcards, Quizzes and Notes but only in the annotations( not in the nodes) on Mind Maps. This is due to how our Mind Map tools renders text.

To enter mathematical symbols you need to insert the code within either:

\( …\) or \[ …\]

The \(…\) is for inline text

While \[…\] is for stand alone text

Below we have outlined the text needed for the most common types of Mathematical symbols and equations.

Note: All these examples appear in the stand alone text format i.e. \[…\]. If you wish to include the symbols within text you will need to use the inline bracket set of \(…\)

When it comes to maths it’s always best to start with the Greeks…

Pro Tips:

Right click on any symbols you see in GoConqr and you’ll be given options to see it in LaTex code. If you’re copying and pasting code in from elsewhere make sure and ‘paste as plain text’.

Having LaTex in a resources title will create very ugly links if you share that resource. Only enter LaTex as a title if it’s necessary!

Can I Share A Private Resource With A Friend?

Yes, a private resource can be shared with a friend on GoConqr. Click on Share on theactions bar and you can enter your friends username or click the icon to select from your list of friends.


What is a Tag?

We have introduced GoConqr tags as a way of categorising your resources so that common topics and resources can be identified. By adding a tag to your resource, you can allow GoConqr to suggest similar public resources on that topic. This allows you to gain access to a wider range of relevant public content on GoConqr.

tagTags can be added when you title your resource or by choosing the “edit details” (tag) button in view mode of the resource. You should give information about the topic, subject or level. Simply type a word or phrase and press enter.

Finding Study Aids

Where Are My Study Resources?

You can find your study resources by:

  1. Searching through your Subjects
  2. Using the Search bar

1. Searching through your Subjects

subjectsThe Left hand side of your home page shows your most recently accessed subjects. Click on Show All to see all your subjects. You can arrange the resources in your subject in different Topic sections. You can add new subjects and you can archive old subjects when you no longer need them.

Note: If you start creating a resource while in a subject folder, that resource will automatically be saved to that subject. When you close a resource you have created, you will be prompted to save it to a subject. If you do not save the resource to a subject, it will be placed in your ‘Unassigned’ folder.


searchfilter2. Using the Search Bar

Input your desired search terms on the Search bar, visible on GoConqr’s header.

Once presented with the results of your query, you can further filter them, by selecting the search scope and resource type.

  • My own = resources you have created
  • My pins = resources created by others that you have pinned to one of your subjects
  • My groups = resources that have been shared with groups that you are a member of.
Why Should I Complete 100% of My Profile Info?

Filling in this information allows us to tailor public content to what will be of interest to you.  We can suggest Courses, Resources, and Groups based on your profile info.

It also helps us to categorise your content properly so others can learn from what you’ve created too!

It will make it easier for friends, colleagues, and people with similar learning interests to find you on GoConqr.



What is a Pin?

Imagine that you have found a great learning resource that you would like to check again in the future. Since you did not create the resource, you cannot move it onto one of your subjects.

Pins exist for those cases. By clicking on the “Pin to…” option, while on a resource’s view mode, you are effectively saving a link to it, within your preferred subject, for later reference. The pin option is located at the bottom right hand of any mind map or flash card document.

That way, you will easily find it any time!

Where Can I Find My Pins?

Your Pinned Resources will be within the Subject that you assigned them to, when you initially pinned them.

You will be able to differentiate your pinned resources from the rest because they display a “Pin” icon on the top right-hand side corner of a resource tile. You can move the resource to a different subject by clicking the check box to the left of the tile and then clicking the ‘move folder’ icon at the top of the page.


When you search for a resource using the search bar at the top of the page, you will see the option to filter by ‘my pins’, if you want to limit the search to things you’ve already pinned


How Do I Move or Remove a Pin?

To move a pinned a learning resource, go to the resource’s view mode and click on the actions icon. actionsOn the emerging pop-up menu, you will notice a “Move” button. Click on it and tyou can move the pinned resource to another topic or subject instead.

You can also remove a pin from with in a subject by clicking the checkbox to the left of the tile and then clicking the trashcan icon at the top of the page.

Playing Study Aids

What is Play Mode for Mind Maps?

Play Mode is a quick way of turning your resources into a presentation. This is perfect for students or teachers who want to quickly recap a resource before an exam or while studying.

Press Play to see an overview of the Living Environment Regents Exam here.

When you are in view mode of a mind map, you will see a little play button in the center of the frame. Clicking the play button will obviously set things in motion but you can also do a step by step play-through by clicking the arrow buttons on either side.

You can also adjust the speed at which it plays by adjusting the control to the left (yes, the little turtle and hare).

Once you know the logic behind how Mind Maps play you’ll easily be able to adjust it to suit your needs.

A Mind Map plays the central node first and then plays the first layer of nodes. It starts at 9 o’clock and works clockwise around the central node. Once it plays each node in the inner layer it moves on to the next layer. Once it has shown all nodes it then shows the images you have inserted in the same way.

Can I View My GoConqr Resources Offline?

Desktop users cannot view their GoConqr resources without an internet connection, but they can easily print them off for off-screen viewing.

Note also that GoConqr automatically saves your study resources as you work so that should your internet connection fail while you are creating or editing a resource, your content will be restored once your session resumes.

Mobile users, however, can view resources offline when using the GoConqr apps.

They can also create and edit new resources offline and then sync their offline changes to their web accounts once they have regained internet access.

Can I Print My Resources?

Yes, you can print your Mind Map, Flashcards, Quizzes, Notes, Slides, Flowchart and your Study Planner/ Calendar. Print my resources. 

Printing is one of the options you access via the Actions menu, either by clicking the Actions Icon in view mode, or the actions button on a resource tile. actions

What is the Difference Between a Public and a Private Resource?

A Public resource is discoverable. This means that if someone has the unique public URL, they will be able to view the resource. Users who search the GoConqr library will be able to discover and learn from your resource. A Private resource is locked-down; only you and those you share it with can see it.

Every GoConqr user has the option of searching the GoConqr library– this is the collection of all public resources. Others may study using your resources but you can use theirs. We think this approach is best as it allows for the cross-pollination of ideas and viewpoints which are beneficial for better learning.

Resources must be public in order to embed on a blog, share on social media, or embed in another GoConqr resource.

How to switch from Public resource to Private resource or vice versa

When in View Mode, you can see whether a resource is Public or Private by looking into the resource’s information area, next to the resource’s title. You can then turn a resource public or private by clicking on “Edit Details” and selecting your preferred option.

To encourage sharing and learning, only users with Premium accounts can make their resources private. Learn more about Premium accounts here.

What is Tracking on Mind Maps?

Tracking allows you to easily tick off areas of a Mind Map that you feel you know or that you have completed tasks for. To access this feature, click footprint (tracking!) button in the view mode of a Mind Map.

You now have the ability to tick the corner of nodes or notes. Tick all the nodes or text boxes you have completed or learned. You will notice a small completion box appear on the resource showing an update of the % completed and the parts you know will be grayed out.






tracked-mind-map-performanceTo see the completion rate without being in the resource, simple click the info button on the resource tile and then chose the performance tab.

Tracking on Mind Maps is a useful tool to track your progress as you work through your study material. It is particularly helpful to map out what you need to learn (e.g. a subject curriculum) and gain confidence as you learn.

How Can I View my Performance on Quizzes and Flashcards?

GoConqr allows you to view your performance on Quizzes and Flashcards over time. Simply click on the “View Performance Stats” button at the completion of a Quiz or Flashcard deck.


This will provide 2 options, “My Attempts” and “Global Attempts”.

“My Attempts” displays your recent scores in a graphical format. Hover over the data point to see the score and date of the attempt on the graph. You are also provided with an average score from all your attempts.

“Global Attempts” is a feature that enables you to see the range of scores from all attempts on the resource, not just your own. This will allow you to gauge your level of knowledge compared to the total GoConqr community.

What is the Difference Between a ‘Read-only’ Share and a Copyable Share?

A read-only share is like a snap-shot of your resource— other people can’t edit it, just view it. Copyable resources can be copied and edited by others. This is useful,for example, if you want to provide a template of a mind map and have students or colleagues work on their own copies.

In order to make a resource read-only, you must have a premium account.

To make a resource read only, in edit mode, click on the lock icon. Note that this is a different permission from Public/Private – you may want public access to your resource (e.g. to share on social media, but might still want to restrict copying)permissions-lock

When you are viewing a resource, you can click on info to see if it has been copied, and who the original author was.




How Can I See Related Resources Created By Others?

GoConqr has a vast library of public learning resources. We have introduced tags to help you identify related resources. You can now add various tags to your resource which will act as a way of identifying related resources. We then suggest resources to you in a number of ways.

  1. We suggest resources to you in your activity feed.
  2. We suggest resources to you in your subject folder.
  3. We suggest resources to you on the Suggested Content page, which you access by click ‘Suggested Content’ on the left hand side of your home page. These suggestions can be based on your profile, or your subjects.
  4. When viewing a resource, click the link symbol to see more related resources.

Tags can describe the subject, exam or topic that you are studying/teaching. The more tags that you add to a resource, the more relevant content you will see.

Another good way to find related resources is to look at the the profile of the user who created a resource – you will be able to see any public resources that they have shared.

You can also find resources under the Resources tab in groups that you are a member of.

If you find a resource that you like, it is useful to rate it (with stars!) or to leave a comment for the author.

How Do I Embed a Resource in My Blog?

Once a resource is public, you can easily embed it in a blog (or any webpage).

When viewing a resource, click on the action icon then chose the ‘Share’ option and you’ll be shown the embed code for that resource.

Insert this code into the HTML section of your blog and your readers will be able to interact with the resource no problem!

Note: A resource must be public before it can be embedded.

If for some some reason the embed code doesn’t work, make sure you paste it in as plain text and perhaps use the tags [iframe] embed code [/iframe]


What is Course Builder?

Course Builder is an authoring tool that allows you to integrate and organise your learning resources in one place.

Courses allows you to sort your study material sequentially and store resources – whether Mind Maps, Notes, Flashcards, Slides or Quizzes – in a single package. You can share the courses you create with the members of any Group of which you are an administrator.

Course builder FAQ

You can find Course Builder in the section “Courses” on the left-hand side of your Dashboard, just below your subjects. To see a list all your courses simply click the “show all” button.

Course Maker button

You can also find resources allocated to a particular group using the “Courses” tab within a group in which you are a member.

course builder tab

By clicking “Resume” you can continue a course from exactly where you left off, meaning you can rapidly progress without having to start the course from scratch or go over old ground.

How Can I Create and Edit a Course?

Go the “Courses” section on the left of your Dashboard under subjects.

create a course

Step 1: Create a New Course

If you want to create a course, simply click on the button “Create Course”. This will bring up a box with the heading “Course Settings”. Here you can add the name (or title) of your new course, together with the description and privacy settings.

First, we recommend that you fill in the basic information about your course by adding a title and description.

Course builder settings

Once you’ve saved this information you will be brought to the course creation page where you can customise your course by adding the content you want.

course maker assign

  • The “Add Title” button lets you can add the names and descriptions of the sections, chapters or topics that will be part of your course. The titles are a useful way of labeling the different parts of your course for easier navigation by readers.
  • “Import resources” lets you attach any GoConqr resources you’d like to include in your course. You can import your own resources, or any public resources created by users and stored in the GoConqr Library (which you can access by entering search terms into the search bar). Note: It is very important that you add the final version of the resource you want to assign to your course since once it is added to the course, any external changes you make to that resource will not be reflected in your course.
  • The “Preview” button shows you what your course looks like before you share it.
  • “Assign” lets you share your course to a GoConqr Group (of which you must be an administrator).

Step 2: Editing a Course

After creating your course, you can edit and re-order it as you wish through the icons located to the right of each of the sections.


  • The pencil icon allows you to change the title of your section or resources.
  • The trashcan icon lets you delete headings or resources.
  • Vertical dots indicate that you can position a title or resource by simply dragging and dropping.
  • The cogwheel icon on each resource allows you to apply a weight for scoring to that element of the course (default =1)

Deleting a Course

To delete a course, click on Actions and you will see the option to delete.delete-course

Note: Always be careful when deleting a course. The system will alert you when you choose to do so as a final warning, since anything you delete cannot be retrieved. Therefore make sure you only click “Delete” if you are absolutely sure you no longer need the material in question!

How to Assign a Course

Assigning a course means sharing it with members of any GoConqr Group in which you are administrator. This is a very useful for encouraging collaborative learning and knowledge sharing with your students, colleagues or employees.

There are two ways by which you can assign a course to a Group:

Option 1. Through your list of courses

  • A. Go to “Courses” on the left-hand side of your dashboard.
  • B. Select the course you want to assign from your list using the “Assign” button located to the right of your course.
  • C. This will bring you to a box where you can choose the Groups to which you can assign your course, along with the option to schedule when you want your course to be assigned and a field to enter instructions for course users when the course goes live.
  • D. Note that you can also enable/disable the alert email to participants when the course starts the notification box.

Steps B and C:

assign course

assign a course admin

Option 2. Through the Group you want to assign your course to

  • A. Click on the “Courses” tab on the right side of the group you have chosen.
  • B. Next, click on the “Assign” button located to the right of the screen.
  • C. Choose one of your courses from the dropdown list, the start time at which you want your course to be assigned and instructions you wish to send to the participants by mail when the course goes live.

FAW course tab assign

FAQ courses assign via group

After performing either of these two steps, the system will alert you that the course has been successfully assigned. Although you can also manually check whether your course has been assigned to your group by going to the “Courses” tab.

Can I change a course I’ve already assigned?

You can change the settings of the courses that you have already assigned (such as the start date, instructions and email notifications).

To change the course settings, go to the Group to which you have assigned the course and click on the “Courses” tab. Choose the course you’d like to modify. To the right of the course you will see an icon with a cogwheel, which allows you to change the settings of the course, and another icon with a paper that lets you delete the Course Group.

Note: Please note that you can only assign courses to GoConqr Groups in which you are an Administrator. For details about creating Groups click here.

Sharing a course with a friend

Although you can’t share a course directly with a friend, you can share the URL. This is in the top navigation bar of your browser, or click on the Info button when viewing a Course.

Sharing a course with Private Links

If you are a GoConqr Campus member with Private Links permissions, you can securely share a Course you have authored with users who are not on GoConqr by using our Private Links function.

What Are Online Flashcards?

One of the most popular study methods is using Online Flashcards. If you have never created a Flashcard deck before, here’s a quick guide to help you get started:

What are Online Flashcards?

Online Flashcards, also known as as notecards or study cards, are two-sided cards that are used to study as they help improve memory and retention. They are mainly used to remember key facts, concepts, dates, formula, vocabulary but they can be applied in a number of areas.

How Do Online Flashcards Work?

On the first or front side, you insert a question, word, image etc. and on the reverse you add the explanation, translation, synonym or any other information you want to memorise. The possibilities are endless!

Below is an example of the front and reverse of a flashcard. On the front, there is an image with a natural phenomenon and the reverse shows its name, the Aurora Borealis:

how to create online flashcards creating online flashcards

How To Use Online Flashcards to Study

Once you have created your flashcard deck based on your study notes, you can review the cards one-by-one, guessing the answer on the reverse based on the information on the front of the card. As you go through this process, you can use the thumbs up, thumbs down buttons to indicate which cards you know or don’t know. The method is very simple and helps you memorise your learning curriculum easier and quicker.

Why Use Online Flashcards

online flashcard makerIn the past, Flashcards were made of paper or card but the widespread availability of technology means that you can now create and use virtual study resources which can be easily shared and won’t be lost or broken.

GoConqr’s online Flashcard tool allows you to access the study notes you create online from anywhere, on any device. In this way, you can take advantage of your downtime by reviewing your notes and maximising your study time.

Also, it’s very easy to mark which Flashcards you know, flip all cards in your deck, reorder and update your Online Flashcards with GoConqr.

If you have not tried ExamTime’s Flashcard tool before, you can start creating your first deck here.

What Is The Bell At The Top Of The Screen?

The bell at the top of the screen on your GoConqr header is your notification bell.Capture4

The bell will light up whenever an action occurs, to notify you. This works in a similar way to the Facebook notifications and alerts you receive when a new friends has added you on GoConqr, someone has shared a resource with you or commented on one of your learning resources etc. Click on it to see your most recent GoConqr notifications.

The icon on the side of an alert (in the green area above) tells you which alerts you have not seen yet. You can mark them as read by clicking on the icon or on the “Mark all as read” option, if you have several alerts that you already know about.
