Features[edit]

Students create Studyhall.com accounts by providing the platform with their .edu email addresses. Studyhall members add their classes to their profile each semester, and are connected to other students in the same courses.[10] Other student groups are also able to communicate with Studyhall.com’s group forum pages. Students are notified of other members’ activity on the website through updates on their account homepage.[11][12]

Studyhall.com accounts have a word processing feature for members to record, share, and organize class notes. Each accounts has video-chat capability for interactive study sessions, in which notes can be shared between two members on a collaborative “whiteboard.”[13]
