Austin, TX, October 15, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Starting last month, higher-education students have a new tool for studying at their disposal. It's called SolutionsSurfer.com and it's a social networking website with the potential of revolutionizing the way students learn. The website is completely free for students and will never charge a subscription fee or make you purchase points to access any content.
Thanks to the open-source platform called ELGG v1.5, SolutionsSurfer.com features provide students with the ability to network with one another and share their knowledge. Registered users can use the site to collaborate on solving homework problems, share educational resources or any course study-materials (student-generated notes, homeworks, tests, etc), study together online (with multi-person chat), organize their tasks in an online task manager and research info on topics with an in-site Google search module.
SolutionsSurfer.com is built upon the basic principles that all learning is inherently social and that educational information and knowledge should always be free. “This site is dedicated to bringing higher-education students together to build a supportive and efficient learning environment. We are all social learners and we continually learn from one another every day, in all sorts of situations, so it’s only natural to want to be able to extend social learning to formal educational courses.” said Teodora Pogonat, SolutionsSurfer.com developer.
The website is user-driven and enabled with user-generated content based on a give-n-get Karma-system for the betterment of the online community. The more registered users contribute and interact on the site, the more resources are available for students to find. All these features in one location make it easier for students to efficiently manage their study time and increase their understanding course concepts.
With these basic tenants, the website’s social networking features and supportive community environment are built to enable students to help students and in-turn, enhance their educational experience.
