Classmint is a free, commercial, Web-based app that is different from competitors in that it offers multiple note taking options including Cornell Notes, flashcards, active recall, and timely repetition of notes. Classmint offers the ability to add complex math, computer code, and images to help create notes that students will want to review. Students can add a subject or class to their notes, and Classmint will create folders by subject automatically.
The interface is very intuitive—controls are clearly labeled with universal symbols. The service works well in just about any browser and provides the ability to export files to one of six formats, including Word and PDF.
Services like Classmint could be useful to students who like to use flashcards as a method of reviewing before a test. The option to share sets of flashcards makes Classmint a good option for students who want to help each other create review materials.
For those teachers running Flipped Classrooms, this is the perfect tool to make sure students are watching their assignments and getting the information they need for their face to face interaction with you.
