Our Mission, and the Importance of Free

At StudyBlue, our mission is to make studying efficient and effective for every student, for free.

To fulfill this mission, we’ve created a student-centric learning network that uses class-based collaboration and organization tools for students to manage the notes and online flashcards that represent the key concepts they need to master. In addition, our mobile flashcard apps, quiz tool, reminders, study stats and a host of other free features keep students on a path towards reaching their individual academic goals.

Based on the utility provided by our free services, we have a growing percent of students who log in to StudyBlue daily, studying dozens of files and spending hours on our site. In short, they demand more from our product. This is why StudyBlue operates as a freemium service, providing advanced features designed for our heaviest users. Two weeks ago, we introduced an update to our StudyBlue+ offering, which will help our flashcard-loving students exponentially increase their productivity.

We’re proud to offer this suite of free and premium study-focused productivity tools and to students across the world, and are humbled by the thousands of students joining STUDYBLUE every day in pursuit of achieving their academic goals.

Thank you for joining us on our mission. Stay tuned for more.
