LexDex is a service that can help student create the flashcards from textbooks online. The students can also study the flashcard on line, and even download them to their mobile phones

LexDex was founded by three American guys who have all recently graduated from university. The development of this site was inspired by their quest to find better ways to study languages throughout their time at university. Having spent many hours creating flashcards, and toting bags of them around so that they could study outside of the library or home, they thought that there had to be a better way.After moving to Shanghai, they found that learning Chinese continued to present the same challenges that they encountered in college, and so decided to develop LexDex as a solution. 

LexDex is still at an early stage. Now it appears to be just a language learning tool by which the vocabularies are picked up from language textbooks (Chinese, Spanish textbooks, etc) and can be ‘printed’ on the flashcards. The team said, “We are concentrating on language learning right now, and are working on getting all of the languages up before we move onto other subject areas. In addition to working on other languages, we are also working on developing other applications of the data we have databased from the textbooks, such as a hangman game and different sorts of quizzes that allow students to test their knowledge of the material they are learning. When we move to the other subject areas, the flashcards will look essentially the same, just with different content!”. A nice tutorial can be found demonstrating how LexDex works.
