There’s been a surge of new and helpful cloud based tools for students and lovers of learning lately. From Flash Cards to Student Jobs, online resources are expanding and that means less stress, more convenience and an overall pleasant college experience. One of this week’s Nifty Collection members, wePapers, seeks to enhance informational references to aid in one’s curriculum.
Much like a traditional social network, information is exchanged and shared, though wePapers is more specific with emphasis on education. Through the collection of academic material, wePapers provides users with sources that otherwise would not exist. While Wikipedia, online research and even old fashioned encyclopedia usage are all generous distributors of relevant information, many times an extra piece is needed to push the boundaries of knowledge.
Things like case studies and volunteer experiments won’t be found in hard cover books and are unlikely to show up on YouTube. So through wePapers, students can break down their discipline and filter out anything from Presentations to Lecture Notes, revealing an entirely new set of details they didn’t have before.
The assistance flows both ways too. Through the upload feature, documents are shared with wePapers for others to gain knowledge from. In addition, members can use wePapers as a complete storage area for research notes, projects and anything else they’re working on. Sharing knowledge is something people do everyday, so when wePapers targets students it seems like the perfect educational companion.
