What is StudyMate?

StudyMate is a third party software that has been integrated with our learning management system, Springboard. It is used to create learning activities that engage the students in course materials using a variety of games, assessments, and study tools. Students can access StudyMate activities using computers, smartphones, and tablets.
The product line includes StudyMate Author and StudyMate Class. Both products are included with our campus-wide license, enabling instructors to choose the approach and technology that best meets their objectives.

Why Would You Use It?

StudyMate provides a dozen various activities from which students can to select to engage with the content. This includes flash cards, crosswords puzzles, matching games, fill-in-the-blank, and quizzes. The instructor can choose to have the results from these activities report back to the Springboard gradebook, if desired.
The use of templates makes the creation of these activities user friendly for instructors and students alike. Instructors can choose to create the learning objects, or they can allow individual students or groups to develop their own study materials. Multiple Choice and True/ False questions can be imported from test banks, or questions can be created directly within the system located in your Springboard classroom.
