StudyHall – Find Academic Support System Online

StudyHall is an online platform that helps students in middle school, high school, and college connect with fellow students and qualified tutors who can help improve their grades. By moving their after-school study sessions away from library and into the cloud, StudyHall makes it possible for students to access their assignments and notes from any computer with an Internet connection.

Make the first step toward improving your grades by signing up for a StudyHall plan. Create a profile and add the names of all the courses you’re currently taking. The more information you include about your academic life, the easier it is for StudyHall to recommend “buddies” for you to connect with. Start a “studyhall” or upload a document (like notes from a recent lecture, for example) to share with your friends. You can schedule a studyhall session with friends who also use the platform, or request notes for a class you missed while you were out sick. When you “share” a studyhall after the real-time study session is through, you can collaborate with other users and get their feedback on the topics you went over.

StudyHall works with hundreds of tutors and teachers to provide students with homework help and exam preparation. The platform also offers tools that teachers can use to manage their courses and facilitate discussions beyond the walls of the traditional classroom.
