StudyBlue - Collaborative Study Tools

Study Blue is a website for students to share and collaborate on the creation of study tools. High School and college students can share notes from class, create multi-media flashcards, email, and share calendars using Study Blue. Students can establish study groups or search for study groups already created on Study Blue. One of the better features of Study Blue is that students can use it by signing in with their Facebook login credentials. Students may forget the login information for a stand-alone website but they never forget their Facebook login information.

Applications for Education
Study Blue is a good tool for encouraging students to work and study together.
The Facebook sign-in option eliminates for most students the obstacle of "I forgot my password."
