I ran across this site while looking for Latin study materials for a friend who is struggling with her summer Latin course. What I love about it is that it is an excellent cross platform study tool. You can use it on the web, on the iPad/iPhone, Android, and you can even connect it to Evernote (a notetaking program) to make generating material for it easier.
When you arrive at the site you can click on the main section to play a video which is a series of student testimonials, but also explains what StudyBlue does. I loved that they highlighted how easy it was to use as pocket work.
Pocket work is anything you can carry with you to study or do while you’re on the go. Need to wait somewhere for a bus or a doctor’s appointment, you can pull it out and study. When I was an academic coach we put a lot of emphasis on making the most out of opportunities to study.
To join you can either register with your Facebook account, a Google account, or your e-mail account. I chose to sign up with my Google account because that’s the account that I use for all of my school related things.
After you’ve logged in, you’ll pick whether you are a student or a teacher, I chose student, and then it asks where you go to school and what class you want to study for. If the class isn’t in the list, you can add it.
After the class information it will as if you want the app sent your phone number, you can skip this. Then you’ll hit the subscription information, you’ll want to pick the Free level.
It’s up to you then to find the classes you want to study for and join them, make flashcards, and start studying!
This is an excellent tool, and I’m really looking forward to using it in the fall. Check it out today!
