OpenStudy Launches a Mobile App for Making Studying Social

OpenStudy is a free service that allows students to create online study groups. Students can create groups to share notes and ask each other questions. OpenStudy currently claims more than one million users. MIT OpenCourseWare has named OpenStudy its official study help partner. Last week OpenStudy released an iOS app for students to use to participate in study groups on the go.


At its most basic Open Study is a message board for students in search of help answering difficult questions. Students could use it just for that purpose, but Open Study provides more than that. Open Study offers students the option to create or join online study groups, subscribe to other students' updates, and provides students with a place to record their notes online. Students can register for Open Study using their email addresses or connect to Open Study with their Facebook accounts.

Open Study Becomes More Open

Last month I introduced you to Open Study. Open Study is a free service that allows students to create online study groups. Students can create groups to share notes and ask each other questions. This week Open Study added some new features including "public access" to content on Open Study. This means that Open Study users don't have to log-in in order to view content (they do have to log-in to post new content). Also this week Open Study added new help videos on Vimeo.

To learn more about Open Study, watch the video below.

Open Study - Create or Join Online Study Groups

Open Study is a new collaborative study service developed and funded in part by Georgia Tech, Emory University, and the National Science Foundation. At its most basic Open Study is a message board for students in search of help answering difficult questions. Students could use it just for that purpose, but Open Study provides more than that. Open Study offers students the option to create or join online study groups, subscribe to other students' updates, and provides students with a place to record their notes online. Students can register for Open Study using their email addresses or connect to Open Study with their Facebook accounts.

Watch the video below for an introduction to Open Study.


Applications for Education
Open Study could be very helpful for students that need help beyond the times when their teachers are available to answer questions. Open Study could also be helpful for homeschool students and for students involved in independent studies.
