This is another excellent networking tools for students for sharing courseworks/ assignments and for lecture-related discussions. Its just recently launched.

I had a chance to try it and made some feedbacks to the owners. The owners are getting some involvements from the lecturers in the UK universities for using this service. Some are already in, while many more in the pipeline. Otherwise this is an excellent tools.

Please note you will need "academic email address" to register. Although majority members at the moment are from UK universities, you dont have to be a UK student to join.

Please pass on to other students.

I wanted to let you all know - me and a friend Adam have been working on a website for the last 6 months or so.

www.unicitee. com

Please check it out!!

Unicitee is a website made for students and lecturers that allows you to collaborate, discuss and work together on your university courses.
Upload lecture notes, coursework assignments and past papers
Post questions, comments, links, ideas and opinions
Watch (and upload) streaming audio/video of each of your lectures
Search for similar modules at other universities
Send Messages to your fellow students and lecturers
Get organised with the online timetable, to-do list and calendar

FYI you need to have an academic email address to register...so i guess you will have to check the site tour out if not.

PLEASE can i ask u all to forward the link on to all your friends/fam and ppl u knw at uni. IA hope it spreads by word of mouth.

The site is aimed at essentially creating a mini home page for each of your uni course modules, with discussion forums, posted document/videos/ audio/links/ messaging etc.

Thoughts/ideas please!
