Brainscape partners with top publishers, schools, and educators to create flashcards for subjects as diverse as foreign languages, the Medical College Admission Test, music theory, Advanced Placement exams, Series 7 prep, and sports trivia. Students, professors, teachers, and businesses around the world have created more than 1 million subjects that are available via search. Users can also easily create multimedia flashcards both online and within the app itself, as well as share decks with classmates and collaboratively develop content together.
