Studycard Studio sports fill-in-the-blank, multiple choice, multiple answer, and true/false questions. The software’s card design system lets you form sentences with a fill-in-the-blank directly within the sentence itself. You can arrange multiple choice answers in rows or columns, or positioned around a picture. Informative explanations can be added to follow wrong or correct answers.
Graphics, digital photos, movies, and audio can be drag and dropped into cards. You can format text using different colors, fonts, and styles. Studycard Studio supports world scripts, and international fonts; this means the software can be used to study Chinese, Japanese, Korean, or Hebrew languages, among others.
Studycard Studio’s card Navigator displays each card as a thumbnail preview. You can sequence your cards or copy them between documents by dragging and dropping. Cards can be classified by such criteria as category and difficulty levels.
You can select from a variety of study methods, including Quiz, Slide Show, and Flip. Each can be further customized with options to skip learned cards, show answer previews, learn groups of cards at a time, use time limits, speech, sound effects and cinematic-quality transitions, shuffled or sequential order, and swapped questions and answers.
Both are compatible with Mac OS X (10.1 and higher) and Mac OS 9.x. Some of the software’s features are disabled in the “lite” version. However, you can download it, give it a test drive, and upgrade to the full version for US$29.
