Principal function(s): Autonomous learning

Memrise allows you to create "courses" which are basically flashcards with chunks of information, and quizzes from the information on the flashcards. Users can also access other people's courses and quizzes. Memrise may be used for free on a computer or a phone, but registration is required. Evaluation: Memrise is an online learning community with language courses on different topics. It is built on the idea of a garden where you plant new seeds and help them grow. When you start learning a new language, you collect new words and phrases and you have to practice constantly. The process is similar to the natural process of planting, watering, growing, and harvesting.

Cost: Free with registration + paid premium plans
