Wall Street Journal: Do Study Sites Make the Grade?

Web Resources | No Comments »

CramsterThe Wall Street Journal recently examined the impact of “study sites” on the current state of education in high schools and universities throughout the country. These sites provide students with online access to course materials such as lecture notes and documents, as well as textbook solutions and old tests and have become a point of discussion among faculty and administrators.

While students consider these websites to be a tremendous resource, teachers and professors are not quite as enthusiastic, “claiming they promote dishonesty among students.” Where do you stand?

Noted Study Sites:

  • Cramster – Students have access to everything from lecture notes to textbook solutions for classes primarily in math and science. ($10/month)
  • eNotes – English literature focused site includes a wide range of resources that allows users to ask questions to experts and a web-based community.
  • Course Hero – A library of over 2 million student-contributed course materials and a Facebook-like section that allows users to connect with other students. ($20/month)
