Finals Club is a new website that aims to provide an online space for college students to blog about class lectures as well as converse in forums on a range of academic topics. Students can form groups, invite their friends to join, and assign tasks all with the goal of a more comprehensive learning experience and, as the Harvard Crimson points out, increased “transparency among study groups.”
All of the user-generated content at Finals Club is released under a CC BY-NC license, keeping the content created therein open and free to use for future students. While currently only available at a select group of universities, Finals Club shows great promise as a platform for students to collaborate academically in an open manner.
