This online community could help you get a better degree
Stop wasting time on Facebook watching amusing sausage dog videos
All of your best experiences at uni will be because of other people.
Whether it’s a bar crawl with your housemates that you wish could last forever, or an unplanned day trip to the beach, the fun bits of being a student wouldn’t be the same without other people.
If only it was the same for when you need to get your head down and study.
Instead, any attempt to try and speak to friends over Facebook about the work you’re doing will inevitably be derailed by funny sausage dog videos and countless other distractions.
That’s where Cloudents comes in: a social studying platform that gives you access to a community focused only on academic activity. Work together with like-minded peers on your assignments, get recommendations on study materials, and discuss any ideas you’re interested in.
Cloudents also give you 10GB of storage which is accessible from anywhere, ensuring you can work on that essay no matter whether you are somewhere on campus or still tucked up in bed at home.
All Cloudents features are designed specifically with students’ needs in mind, making it easy to share ideas, collaborate on seminar work, and revise ahead of those all-important exams.
Plus, if you sign up now (it’s free!), you could win a Macbook Air. Just click here to sign up. Once you have, refer as many student friends as you can using the integrated Facebook tool, as each referral counts as a separate entry into the grand prize draw.
How Cloudents can help you
- You can join and create closed study groups and share, review and discuss documents
- You can take quizzes to test your knowledge ahead of exams (and create them for other people to use)
- You can ask the Cloudents community for help with any questions you have about your area of study
- You can ask classmates to remind you about upcoming deadlines
- You can browse old lecture summaries and exam papers that other students have uploaded
Cloudents isn’t designed to replace the likes of Blackboard or Moodle, but instead works as a perfect accompaniment alongside them.
These official Virtual Learning Environments are a great way for staff to contact students, but don’t work so well the other way around, especially if you’re worried your question is going to make you seem stupid to your lecturer.
