StudyMate

What is StudyMate?

StudyMate lets you create ten Flash-based activities and games using three simple templates. The Flash activities can be used with any web server or published directly to a Blackboard. StudyMate will import items from MS Word files and publisher test banks, making it easy to create interesting, interactive activities from existing content. Best of all, you don't have to know Flash programming or HTML to use StudyMate. See StudyMate examples.
