Feb. 19, 2018
While we never want apps to replace a study session in the learning resource center, a conversation with your instructor or reaching out to a lamplighter, we recognize there’s real value in integrating mobile technology into your health care training program!
When it comes to student mobile apps, there’s a wide range of them that fall under the broad term of “educational.” Get smart with these apps, listed in no particular order. They’re available on iStore and Google Play.
Wouldn’t it be great to have all those study notes in your pocket to take with you on the road?
The Quizlet app is designed for marathon study sessions. It’s basic but allows you to create your own flashcards.
Users can share flashcards with one another, race against the clock in a gaming-type format and integrate maps, images, charts, and figures into studying.
It even works offline. Plus, the setup process is seamless, and the interface is straightforward.
