GoConqr

Principal function(s): Flashcard creatorsMind mapping

GoConqr is an online platform designed for creating and sharing educational resources such as mind maps, flashcards, quizzes, and more. Users can create various learning materials using GoConqr's tools and templates, then share them with others or keep them private for personal use. It can be used for a wide range of purposes, including studying for exams, creating lesson plans, and fostering collaboration among students or colleagues. While not specifically designed for linguistic skills, GoConqr can aid in language learning through flashcards, mind maps, and quizzes. GoConqr was developed by a team of educators and developers based in Ireland. GoConqr offers both free and premium and requires having an account to access and create content on the platform. Evaluation: GoConqr is a valuable tool sense it offers interactive study tools and collaborative features, fostering active learning and knowledge sharing. It can be especially suitable for study groups or classes since it allows organising schedules and sharing files. GoConqr can also help learners organise their materials, devise an own learning strategy and join open groups. Yet, a downside of GoConqr is that only the paid option allows creating private courses and resources. Basic IT skills required.

Cost: Free with registration + paid options available
