Aspen Flashcard Series For i-phone & i-pod

We may well have missed this last November when first announced. Aspen Publishers has partnered with Modality, a developer of learning and reference content for the Apple iPhone® and iPod touch®, to transform the popular Law in a Flash study series into digital study resources for course and bar review.

“Law students are very busy and are constantly looking for ways to fit content review into their workloads,” said Jen Armstrong, Director of Marketing for Aspen Publishers Legal Education. “The new Law in a Flash mobile applications make it incredibly convenient for students to carry one of their favorite study aids with them for anywhere, anytime review.”

Each Law in a Flash subject series includes hundreds of cards designed for efficient review of numerous legal topics. Using the intuitive iPhone interface, the traditional flash card model has been reinvented to allow users to review questions or hypothetical situations on the front of each card then tap the screen to flip the card over, revealing additional details. Personal study notes may be entered for each card via the touch-screen keyboard. A “study set” feature enables students to bookmark and save cards requiring further review.

“Our iPhone and iPod touch applications give time-starved students an edge,” said S. Mark Williams, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Modality. “We have heard from students in a variety of fields that the ability to carry trusted learning content on their favorite personal media devices has streamlined their study habits tremendously. We are excited to bring these same benefits to the legal education arena in partnership with Aspen Publishers.”
