The Student Voice in open education

Back to Finalsclub.org

Though there is a growing interest in online education, no platform has managed to help significant numbers of young scholars to collaborate, learn and share knowledge freely. Here, at FinalsClub.org, we have developed the tool (aka, our Simposium Editor) to lead this collaborative effort. The Simposium Editor is designed to encourage the formation of comprehensive notes with a collaborative text editor for small groups to take real-time class notes. With our Simposium Editor, students can also post questions and comments for their classmates (or even their professors) to promote, answer or flag.

Even better, our tools are available as free and open source software. We believe that while useful applications are an essential first step toward networked learning, they are simply tools. The success of open education relies as much on society as technology. In short, FinalsClub aims to shift the default settings on higher education from privilege and privacy to freedom and openness. Thanks to contributions from curious minds everywhere, we strive to revolutionize higher education, one classroom at a time.
