Faculty Best Practices: StudyMate

An engaging way to reinforce key concepts in a course is to provide interactive learning activities and games, such flash cards, crossword puzzles, and challenge games. These types of activities encourage students to spend more time with course content because it doesn’t feel like “learning” to them. Developing these types of educational games and activities has been made easy to do using StudyMate Author. This software tool helps instructors create ten Flash-based activities and games using four simple templates.

  • Activities created using StudyMate can be used with D2L or posted on any website.
  • StudyMate Author will import items from MS Word files, publisher test banks, and directly from Respondus, making it easy to create interesting, interactive activities from existing content with no programming knowledge.
  • Educational Uses: Fact cards, flash cards, pick a letter, fill-in-the-blank, matching, crossword, challenge, and glossary.
