Generate electronic flashcards (in Excel)

First published on October 18, 2006

Simran, whose blog has introduced me to some cool scripts (such as Gallery and Nice titles), has devised a really handy Excel Flashcard Quizzer. All you need to do is fill in the word and definition columns on any subject, and poof, it’ll generate on-screen flash cards that you can navigate through.

He touts this as being useful when learning any language… really though, it could be useful when learning anything that has definitions (well, anything that you might have made flash cards for).

Update: I’ve also been sent a link to another free flash card program:

    Hi, the update from Simran is that his blog is temporarily unavailable because of some spam attacks. He just needs to find the time to upgrade his WordPress installation. No ETA at the moment, but I’ll post again when I hear that it’s back up.

    Is there any possibility of getting a zip file of the Excel Flashcard Quizzer via email? I could really use this over the next few days.

    I think we just have to wait for Simran’s site to come back up…

    I couldn’t find the link either, so I created my own Excel macro. Although I solicit for a couple of $$, it is a free download with no catch.
