iPhone App for LEED Exam Prep uses Virtual Flash Cards
SHP Leading Design is pleased to announce the launch of its second iPhone Application, EcoFlash® BD+C: Flashcards for LEED® AP Building Design and Construction Exam. The flashcards are the second in a series of application geared at helping people prepare for LEED exams. Both apps will have special pricing available until December 11, 2009 and you can learn more by visiting www.ecoflashapps.com.
In an effort to extend their commitment to educating not only their own employees, but also the professional community, SHP Leading Design has designed another revolutionary app for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Building on the success of EcoFlash GA, EcoFlash BD+C helps you study for the LEED AP 2009 Building Design & Construction exam. With over 700 flashcards, EcoFlash BD+C is designed to help you study in different ways just like traditional flashcards.
“SHP Leading Design has used our experience with LEED projects and knowledge of the LEED exams to prepare countless LEED exam candidates through our in-person classes and study guides,” says Allison Beer, SHP’s Director of Sustainability.
A unique feature of EcoFlash is Leafmarks® - the equivalent of bookmarking a certain card the user would like to come back to. A Leafmark icon on each individual card can be toggled on or off. The icon on the user’s homescreen reminds him how many cards he has set aside.
To further aid the study process, EcoFlash will re-order the flashcards for each new session or, the user can tell EcoFlash to remember where the previous session left off. Additionally, EcoFlash allows the user to study by information category such as LEED Process or Water Management or by information type such as Facts and Figures or Referenced Standards. The user also has the ability to listen to music while studying from the app.
The new app is currently priced at $24.99 and the original EcoFlash GA application is now on sale for $14.99. These sale prices will only last until December 11, 2009 and then the prices will be $29.99 and $19.99 respectively. SHP also has a free trial version with an abbreviated sampling of cards - so try it and see what you think! Future versions of the EcoFlash family include flashcard apps for Green Interior Design & Construction (ID+C); Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance (O+M); Homes (HOMES); and Neighborhood Development (ND).
