Presented by: Lester Lefton, President Emeritus of Kent State and Lou Lataif, Dean Emeritus of the School of Business at Boston University

Join Lester Lefton, President Emeritus of Kent State and Lou Lataif, Dean Emeritus of the School of Business at Boston University as they share the power of peer to peer education. We’ll also be joined by Michael Matousek as he shares the story of his company, Flashnotes.com, and its mission to compliment and reinforce the in-class experience and assigned textbook through the Flashnotes.com marketplace. By leveraging original student-created content, students have another opportunity to get help in real-time, preventing them from falling behind throughout the semester, to improve academic outcomes, student retention and graduation rate. In addition, hear the thoughts and experiences of fellow educators on this topic, and learn how you can help your students to take advantage of this technology.

  7. 7. Introduction to Flashnotes Who We Are... Flashnotes.com is the student-to-student study materials marketplace. On Flashnotes.com, college students sell and buy course-specific study materials—study guides, notes, flashcards, video tutorials, and live video help. Our Mission... To complement and reinforce the in-class experience and assigned textbook. What We Aren’t… A repository for exams, tests, homework or a way for students to plagiarize professors or textbooks. How It Works… Students upload their original study material and set their own price. The student received 70% of their total sales in a weekly payment via the payment method of their choice.
  8. 8. Lester Lefton President Emeritus of Kent State University • Remedial forms of education are needed, both before the class and also during. • Content on Flashnotes.com is truly meant to supplement and reinforce what goes on in the classroom. • This reinforcement ensures that more students are on the same knowledge level during each class. • This leads to more engagement inside the class and less issues going forward.
  9. 9. Lou Latiaf Dean Emeritus, Boston University School of Management • Students have always used peer to peer learning as a way to complement formalized education. • It is a way for the students providing instruction to better understand the key concepts and for the student being instructed to hear another student’s perspective around these same concepts. • Universities already have elements on campus that focus on peer-to-peer learning – Tutoring.
