Study buddy spreadsheet experiment!

StuartWStuartW Online Community ManagerLondonRegistered Posts: 472
Hi all,

This is for those of you who might be interested in finding a study buddy. I was thinking that it can be difficult to search through threads and find someone who meets your requirements - you might want someone you can meet in person, for example, but that depends on geography.

So, an experiment: I wonder if a fully-editable and shareable online spreadsheet would be useful for those of you seeking study buddies? You could fill in your details and scan through to see who is on the same level as you, or in a nearby location. The sharing aspect would mean we could pull in people from other places, too, like Facebook and Twitter or even through emailing it to people.

It might be easier to show rather than tell, so I'm going to leave this link to an example version here and see if anyone uses it!

Feel free to leave as much or as little information as you like - no pressure to leave details you'd rather not share. It's a Google spreadsheet but I've set it so that no sign-in is required, which means your real name/email address will not be visible (you'll show as 'Anonymous user 123', or similar).

What do you think - is this of use? Could it be improved?

    Great idea! Will hopefully find some others outside of my college for help with level 4 - also I'm open to help those on level 3

    Great idea, have added my details. I am in SW Norfolk, would be brilliant to get to know other students in the area. I am on Computerised Accounting on L2 and am hoping to get onto L3 in October.
