StudyBlue just launched a lot of new functionality on the website and I bet you’re nervous that it’s happening in the midst of midterms. However, I’m writing this to help you get comfortable with the new functionality and point out some of the exciting new features. We’ve designed the site to make it easier to connect with each other around shared explanations and to take learning to a whole new level. We’re also sure you’ll find our newly added features make creating flashcards much more efficient and effective.
Check out these tips to help you navigate the new StudyBlue tools available so you can prepare yourself to ace those midterms and think ahead to how successful your finals are going to be:
Not sure where to start? Type a subject in the box on the new homepage and you’ll see links to key terms within the subject on the right hand side.
Stuck on a term? Type in a term in the box and scroll down to see different cards that define that term in the SB database. If you find a card you like, click “Add” and add it to an existing or new deck.
You can include others’ definitions to your flashcards when you see an idea you missed. After you type a new term in the “Create a Deck” mode, click on one of the cards below to add it to your deck.
When making a new flashcard, click on the “Media” button on the right to add an image to your card. You can also add images or audio from a URL or drag and drop it onto the flashcard.
When viewing a flashcard deck, you can click on the “view as notes” button to see the cards as a review sheet.
