Web 2.0 Application: Quizlet

Lifehacker recently posted about a new Web 2.0 application called Quizlet. I've checked it out and I must say, I am impressed. It is really easy to import words into your own vocabulary sets. You can enter the terms and definitions one by one or you can just copy the whole list into the their text box, tell it how to find the end of the term and defintion (e.g. a colon at the end of each term and a new line at the end of each definition) and it does the rest. It even lets you preview the terms and definitions before you import them so you can make any necessary changes. For example, it only took me a few minuters to import this list of 484 legal terms into Quizlet. Once you have your set, Quizlet gives you several ways to learn and test yourself on your terms. You can even share your sets and browse other peoples' sets. For example here is the page for the set I created. This seems like a great resource for students, or anyone who needs to learn a new set of vocabulary.
