Quizlet
Quizlet has no pre-determined curriculum. Students define what they need to learn, and we provide the tools. We help Art History majors learn paintings, Spanish students learn their verbs, 5th graders learn their spelling words, and new waiters learn the menus of their restaurants. Our aim is to build software that any learner can use, so we make most of our stuff free.

Since 2007, Shmoop has been a digital publishing company with a point of view.

At least we like to think so.
