Have you heard of StudyUp.com? Neither had we until this past week. It turns out this cool new study tool allows you to store your study notes online. The site operates a lot like Facebook by allowing you to find school buddies and network with people taking similar classes. Even better, there are no fees just like Facebook; so none of this “Upgrade to a Gold Account” mumbo jumbo. Signing up to StudyUp is about as easy as it gets; just 3 basic fields and you are off to the races!
The add notes feature is super easy to use, allowing you to type your notes directly in for practice leading up to tests and exams, or cut and paste from existing note pages you may already have in electronic format. What happens next is the really interesting part.
As you add more notes to the system, StudyUp begins to find correlations between your pages of notes, and begins building a neat Wikipedia style database of your notes, automatically building hyperlinks within the body of your notes linking to other relevant pages. You can also easily search your notes by subject, course, school year, professor and more.
You can follow your study buddies as they add new notes using the StudyUp Home Base. Another neat feature is the ability to share only certain subjects or school years with certain people. So your math buddy does not get to see your science notes if you choose to set it up that way.
There is also a study tips section for helpful hints posted by other students and teachers that are members. What StudyUp really does is keep a free online history of all the courses & classes you have ever taken. Never again worry about digging up last year’s notes to help you solve a current problem. StudyUp keeps it all organized and online for free. Access your notes from anywhere from any device. We give these guys 2 thumbs up!
