In January I wrote a short review of the student planner service MyStudyLife after I met with their lead developer at BETT 2015. There he gave me a preview of some features that they have now made live for all users.
MyStudyLife now supports rotation or block school scheduling. Now when you create a calendar in MyStudyLife you can set a class rotation that will automatically be applied to your calendar and account for holidays and other days on which classes aren’t held. Click here to view screenshots of these features and read MyStudyLife’s description of how the scheduling feature works.
My Study Life allows students to organize tasks according to their course schedules. When students start using the app they have to enter their courses. After entering their courses into My Study Life students can start to enter tasks into each course. Each task is assigned a due date. Students’ My Study Life homepage shows them the tasks that have due dates approaching.
MyStudyLife is available to use in your web browser, as an Android app, as an iPad app, and as a Windows 8 app.
Applications for Education
Whether or not a planner helps a student is usually determined by whether or not the student gets in the habit of using it. My Study Life could be an excellent service for students to get into the habit of using to keep track of their assignments.
