Every good story has a beginning and for Coursella it all started when we were students. We’ve had great days back in university – now we’ve graduated – but we have left it overwhelmed in bad communication habits between teachers and students, as we were mainly relying on e-mail to communicate, and random web services to access and share class material.
While there’s nothing wrong with that – it sometimes does the trick- these tools quickly became constraining as everyone had to manage a great deal of information that was scattered here, there and everywhere. Each year, teachers had to juggle between lists of all their students’ email addresses while students had to filter between random web pages to access class material shared by their professors, and on top of that it wasn’t even that easy to start a conversation with your teacher or your class colleague unless you physically meet.
With Coursella we want to change that!
Imagine a place – an internet platform – where you, teachers and students, get to easily communicate and organize your courses with no distractions. So instead of getting lost in email lists, random web pages and ad-bloated file sharing services, you get all your courses organized in a single place that is secure and accessible via a single username. This way you spend less time organizing and more time learning.
Well, that is Coursella and that’s not all. On top of being able to manage your courses and communicate, you get to manage your time through events and notifications so you never forget about a homework again, and you get to showcase your achievements to your teachers and colleagues so new opportunities appear ahead. It starts here, and we think that there’s no limit on how creative you can get, using Coursella for having a better academic life.
We are just getting started!
Since we’ve launched Coursella six months ago, we’ve had amazing early adopters who gave us great feedback on the project and nice ideas on what would help them be more productive. We’re always on the lookout for more curious teachers and students to help us shape what Coursella becomes. If this is you, just signup, create your course, invite your students/colleagues and hold tight, we are just getting started.
