StudySmarter and STARK extend free homeschooling aid package

  • Students can continue to access all STARK learning content on the StudySmarter learning platform free of charge
  • The offer is valid until the end of the school year
  • The success of the e-learning offering is reflected in the approximately 2 million flash cards created in-house and 2.2 million chapter openings 

In the wake of the Corona crisis, a cooperation between StudySmarter and STARK Verlag is making digital learning content available free of charge to make it easier for students to learn from home. Despite the gradual reopening of the schools, this offer should now remain available until the end of the school year. The success and effectiveness of the offer is reflected in the 450,000 digital learners. On the other hand, the 2 million self-created flash cards and the average duration of 47 minutes per login indicate the effective use of the StudySmarter learning platform. In view of the ongoing challenges, StudySmarter and STARK Verlag have decided to continue to make the digital learning content available free of charge in order to support the students, especially during the final exams. Therefore the use of the learning content on the digital learning platform will remain free of charge until the end of the school year.

Students can continue to access all STARK learning content free of charge on the StudySmarter learning platform
