What is StudyMate?

StudyMate Author helps students "master the basics" of course material through learning activities, self-assessments, and games.  

A dozen activities-- such as flash cards, crosswords and quizzes-- engage students with course content in an individualized way.  Students can access StudyMate activities using computers, smartphones and tablets.

StudyMate Author is a Windows-based authoring tool that enables instructors to create learning activities that students access within online courses or anywhere on the Internet. Like Respondus, StudyMate Author will import items from Word files and publisher test banks, making it easy to create interesting, interactive activities from existing content.

To request your own copy of StudyMate Author please submit a request via the Online Helpdesk site.

StudyMate Class is a web-based version that resides within the online course site in Blackboard or Canvas. Instructors and students can create items collaboratively; student participation can be monitored and graded.
