Study Mate Class

leave a comment »

StudyMate helps students “master the basics” of course material through learning activities, self-assessments, and games. A dozen activities – such as flash cards, crosswords and quizzes – engage students with course content in an individualized way.

A very important component of online course, which is often lacking is the interaction piece. Instructors can use discussions and other activities to allow students to interact, but this method of interaction helps keep students engaged.

Another important component of StudyMate Class is that the product allows the students to create the activities. The old saying that “one learns best by teaching” holds true with this method of study. The work is created and judged by piers; therefore, students will strive to produce good works.

StudyMate is a product of Respondus. To learn more check out their website at www.respondus.com.
