StudyMate Class Server allows teachers and students create study materials in a collaborative, web-based environment. Templates are used to enter items such as terms or facts from lecture. Students can then view the materials using self-assessments or interactive learning activities.

Features

  • Students learn at each step of the process: creating, editing and reviewing items (no more blind memorization of course materials)
  • Instructors can select student-generated questions for use on tests, resulting in “fresh” questions each term
  • “Social learning” fosters peer accountability and makes the course more engaging
  • Student participation can easily be tracked and graded, providing an additional way to assess student knowledge
  • Items can be imported and exported from and to StudyMate Author or Respondus
