24-7SM is a new web site that offers students from across North America the opportunity to
review quality class notes for specific courses. Students can also study in online
discussion groups, chat with friends and more all for free. This site
(http://www.study24-7.com) is the first of its kind and enables students to study online,
24 hours a day, seven days a week.
venture is the brainchild of two recent graduates of the University of Florida and the
University of Pennsylvania, Brian Maser and Graig Green. As college students, they saw the
need to provide students with a service that would allow them to get notes from classes
they may have missed, or simply to supplement their current notes.
In addition to being able to study in cyberspace,
students can earn money by signing up for various NoteTakerSM positions. NoteTakers post
their class notes on to the site, and host their own class chat rooms and discussion
groups. NoteTakers could earn up to $1,500 a semester by receiving a significant portion
of the advertising revenue from sponsors. Students hired for the positions are responsible
for marketing their class note pages.
"When we attended school, the resources for
this type of information were limited to expensive printed formats. Now, with Study 24-7,
students can access quality notes for free, and dont even have to leave their
homes," Maser pointed out.
Students who are interested in becoming NoteTakers
