Learn from others. Teach yourself.

After reaching over 1 million users and nearly two million flashcards being created every week, the team at StudyBlue started working on figuring out the best way for you to take advantage of the extensive network of students and the amazing amount of public knowledge available on StudyBlue. After many long hours and tons of experimenting, we’ve released some exciting new functionality to our website.

We are excited to announce new features that will help you find multiple explanations for what you’re trying to learn, when you’re trying to learn it—faster. You’ll be able to make, share and edit cards easier than ever before.

It’s a proven fact that when you take the time to compare your knowledge to others, you learn better. That’s why we’re striving to make collaboration easier and more effective. Seeing your knowledge juxtaposed with the knowledge of over a million other students will help you make sure you completely understand your material, from every angle, before you take your tests.

Please check out the new features and let us know what you think of them. Are they helpful? How are you using them? What could we do to make it more useful? Visit our community page to share your thoughts. 

Study on.

  1. Ethompson,

    I tried to sign up for this program as a teacher, but it seems that the options I am getting are a students’ options. It immediately asked me which school I attend and gave me a backpack…am I missing something?

    • Ethompson – Thank you for reaching out about this. Please send an email over to our Education Community Manager, Zach, at for further assistance. He can take a look at things for you and make sure you are on the right track.

  2. PJ,

    Can I change some flashcards that have already been saved? If so, how? Thanks.

    • PJ – You certainly can edit flashcards already created. To do so, click on a deck listed in your Backpack to display the cards within it. Scrolling over any of the cards will bring up a number of icons, on of them being a small pencil and paper. This is the edit icon that when clicked on, will transition you into edit mode.

  3. Charchar,

    I love study blue. It makes me feel so good. I want it so bad that it just makes me want to love it.

    • Charchar – Woah. That love sounds pretty intense! We love you too and appreciate your kind words. What features on StudyBlue are most helpful to you and your studying endeavors?

  4. Daniel Cho,

    I love studyblue but you guys need to make a ipad version

    • Daniel – Thanks for the love! We are definitely aware of the need for an iPad app and it is on the horizon. Be sure to keep an eye out for this and other updates to be made as we continue to improve upon our service.

  5. Bona,

    Why have I lost sound on my new DELL computer with Windows 8. It worked with sound on Windows XP, now it’s all gone. Not only that, but I can’t load sound – I just get the sound icon which appears to have loaded the sound but it’s not there. Any Geeks out there that might know the answer?

  6. Does anyone know if it’s possible to study the definitions and test yourself on the question? In other words flip the cards in reverse. Needed for language studies I think.

  7. cj,

    Is there an easier way to copy and print a quiz rather than using Word and deleting everything?
