Study 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.

The new 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 don’t even have to leave their homes," Maser pointed out.

Students who are interested in becoming NoteTakers can apply at www.study24-7.com.
