We launched the StudySoup peer-to-peer learning marketplace in 2014. When we were in school, we found that success in the classroom can be a pretty ambiguous thing. Every class has hours of lectures and dozens of readings. Come midterm time, most students are overwhelmed and have no idea how they should study. Without fail, however, there are always a few top students in the class who know exactly what it takes to be successful. We decided to empower those top students to help their peers, and make money, by posting their best study materials to StudySoup.com.
At the end of the day, learning from your peers is the best way to learn, because after all, who understands your questions better than someone else in the class?
You could win an easy $5,000 scholarship by calling for dictionary sites to create a more accurate, inclusive definition of the word “black.” The word is currently misdefined as things like “dirty” and “evil,” and research shows these definitions fuel real-world prejudice. Dictionary.com has made a commitment to change their outdated definition to reflect a more positive representation of the word Black. Include other dictionaries in the conversation to follow Dictionary.com's lead to update their definition of "Black." Other dictionaries you can include in your tweet: @MerriamWebster, @OxfordWords, @CollinsDict, and other popular dictionary sites (we’ll provide sample text). You’ll make an impact on racial inclusivity *and* enter to win a $5,000 scholarship
