As we make room for good things to come within the next couple of weeks, some tools are undergoing significant changes. To be specific, our upcoming product release will mean the end of note creation within StudyBlue.
We have come to recognize online flashcards as a powerful tool and are excited to soon announce some amazing new functionality built upon the flashcard and quizzing study experience. If you are an avid creator of notes on StudyBlue, do not fear. There are a number of top-notch tools currently available for note creation, which include our Evernote integration, Google Docs, Microsoft Word, and many more. StudyBlue will continue to offer an ability to sync with Evernote, which means notebooks created in Evernote will transfer into your StudyBlue Backpack for easy transition into flashcards.
Even though the ability to create and edit notes will no longer be available, all notes previously created on StudyBlue will be converted to PDFs and downloadable in PDF and HTML format for easy access. We also encourage you to continue to upload class notes to StudyBlue for easy sharing with classmates and quick reviews on our mobile apps.
Another note-taking method to consider revolves around the treatment of notes as flashcards. Have you ever attempted taking notes directly onto flashcards themselves? Content discussed in lectures, small groups, book readings, etc. can be recorded onto flashcards accordingly as each new idea is presented. These kinds of notes would then be readily available for review as either flashcards, a review sheet, or quiz on StudyBlue depending on your study preferences.
As our site evolves into bigger and better things, we encourage you to evolve with us and provide feedback on what may or may not be working for you. Check out our StudyBlue Community page to voice your opinions and read through what fellow users are talking about.
