Blinn College has purchased a license for StudyMate Author 2.5. StudyMate 2.5 is an authoring tool that lets you create 10 Flash-based activities and games using three simple templates. The Flash activities are usable with any web server or can be published directly to eCampus courses. StudyMate will import items from MS Word files or the Respondus Test Bank Network, making it easy to create interesting, interactive activities from existing content.

Blinn College has obtained a license for StudyMate Class, which is now available from within the Desire2Learn Learning Management System (eCampus). StudyMate Class is a web-based application that helps students “master the basics” of course material through the use of learning activities within eCampus courses.

Instructors or students enter glossary terms, facts and questions using simple templates. These materials are then transformed into a dozen learning activities and games, such as flash cards, crossword puzzles and self-quizzes. Students choose activities that appeal to their learning style, engaging them with course content in a powerful, individualized way.

Thousands of publisher test banks available from the Respondus Test Bank Network can also be accessed from within StudyMate Class. These test banks are free to instructors who adopt a participating textbook for their online course. There’s no quicker way to create learning activities and games
based on textbook content.

For a complete list of features, visit the Respondus web site at
