STUDYBLUE supports users in preparing for tests using a digital flashcard system. After registering with the class, users can tap the “Make Cards” button on the left of the screen. Users are then brought to the next screen, where they can create multiple flashcards by adding a term and definition to each flashcard. Next, they tap the “Add Card” button, which saves the flashcard and presents users with a new flashcard. When all the flashcards have been created, users tap the “Done” button and enter in the information needed for saving. Users are then returned to the home screen where they can choose the flashcards from their backpack. They can then add more flashcards, review the flashcards, or take a quiz based on the flashcards. If users choose the “Flip Cards” or the “Take a Quiz” option, they will be presented with a score report when finished. Other options in this app include a “Class” option that allows users to look up their school, find their class and teacher, and then join it. Once joined, users will have access to three class features that include: (1) The “News Feed” feature keeps users updated about the class; (2) the “Materials” feature containing flashcards, notes, quizzes, and other documents related to the class; and (3) the “Classmates” feature contains a list of students enrolled in the class. From the home screen, users can also tap the “Search” button to locate materials, classes, and classmates.

Please Note: The features listed in this description are available for free. Users must upgrade to access additional materials.

Instructional Ideas

  1. After taking notes based on a text or lecture, students can create flashcards for key terms, facts, and ideas that were presented. Students can use the flashcards to keep the information fresh, or they can share it with other students in the class.
  2. When preparing for a vocabulary test, students can create flashcards to use while studying. Students can practice with the flashcards by using the “Flip Cards” and “Take a Quiz” options. After students complete an exercise, STUDYBLUE will provide them with a report about their performance.
  3. After taking notes for a class, students can share them with other classmates by sending them to their teacher and asking him/her to upload them.
