“Every other Monday, right before class ends, Muhammad Zaman, a Boston University biomedical engineering professor, hands out a one-page form asking students to anonymously rate him and the course on a scale of one to five.
It asks more, too: ‘How can the professor improve your learning of the material?’ ‘Has he improved his teaching since the last evaluation? In particular, has he incorporated your suggestions?’ ‘How can the material be altered to improve your understanding of the material?’ ‘Anything else you would like to convey to the professor?’”

Studyers is an application that helps you organize, and share class notes. An alpha version, essentially a prototype, has been extended to HFID students. In the alpha version, students can:
- Take notes,
- Incorporate the lecturer’s presentation,
- Add graphs and free draw, or
- Share lesson notes with each other.
In exchange for your participation (and occasional feedback), you’ll receive full access to Studyers.
If you’re interested in joining Studyers, let them know!
