Many people are now heading back to school, for the fall semester. A new service aims
to make the learning experience a socially-sharable one. NoteMesh
is a collaborative wiki-like way for students to share their class notes, helping other students who missed a day, are out "sick" or help for exams and term-papers. Finally the collective knowledge of the masses is put to good use in the classroom. I could see online-only students benefiting from the service as well, since the service caters to students who are online anyway. One thing I don't like about the service is that you can't use it if you don't have and use your school's provided email account. I understandd the need for authentication, but they can't possibly verify that each person is a part of a certain class anyway, so what's the point?
