MADISON, Wis., April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As college and high school students prepare for finals and year-end exams, StudyBlue has released innovative mobile apps that allow students to study their notes and online flashcards stored or created on StudyBlue.com anytime, anywhere.
The new iPhone, iPod Touch and Android apps have been put to the test by thousands of students worldwide, and the new releases incorporate their feedback. The most popular request from students was "offline study mode," which allows them to review their most recent materials when no Internet connection is available.
College Students Heart SB Mobile Apps
Rebekah, a college student studying abroad in South Africa, used the StudyBlue iPhone app to complete an aggressive course load that included two new languages.
"I've been using StudyBlue for about a school year now, and I just wanted to thank you for creating such an easy and truly useful way of studying. Using your app on my iPhone, I have studied all over the world – even when no wi-fi is available!"
Teachers Embrace Mobile Study Tools
Susan Dillon, a high school English teacher in Modesto, California was one of the first high school teachers to implement StudyBlue in her classroom. She found increased engagement with studying and improved quiz scores.
"I am amazed that students now 'recommend' that I use StudyBlue for a myriad of activities and that they wish their other teachers would use it. Vocabulary quiz grades improved. I believe the immediacy and efficacy of StudyBlue.com and its mobile applications have contributed to this success."
