Hello,

I'm looking for study buddy for silent work on video chat. We don't have to study the same thing or talk much; I'm just looking for a person or group of people to help keep each other motivated and focused.

I'm in the Central European timezone, but am happy to connect with people from any timezone that would allow enough hours of simultaneous study.

PM if interested.

Private messaging is a premium feature. You can quickly upgrade to gain unlimited messages as well as many additional benefits via this page.

Hi all,

Thank you for replying.

The way I usually do this is through Zoom. We turn on cameras, for accountability, and mute ourselves. Depending on personal preference, we can talk a bit - or not. I'm fine with either.

I've been here a while, and have found that the best way to connect with people is to have a recurring study group meeting room on Zoom. That way, we don't necessarily need to set up times in advance and keep sending new links (we just use the same one over and over), and members of the group can meet without me when I'm unavailable.

The group is only for people identifying as female, LGBTQ, non-binary... so all members can feel comfortable while the video cameras are on. Please respect this choice.

If you are interested in joining the group, please send me a private message and I'll give you the login details.

It's too bad that you've recently changed messaging to a premium feature - including messaging with your team (which is why I am broadcasting my opinion here and not in a private message). If this model actually brings you income - by all means - but I suspect most people would not pay to be premium members only for the benefit of being able to send messages; that includes me.

BTW, I understand why you control the sharing of personal information (emails, etc.), but not Zoom groups; the only reason I see for this is that you want people to pay for that privilege.

Hello, I would like to join, but I can't send you a private message unless I pay for the premium offer. If there is any other way to contact you, let me know

I have posted a note about the Premium Membership here: Study Buddy - A Note About the New Premium Membership
I hope that will help you understand better :confused:

Hi Lillyj,

Unfortunately, it looks like there is no longer a way to share contact info for free.

Thanks for writing, and happy studying!

This website seemed already scarcely frequented by people, I've been here for months, and never managed to get a sustainable conversation as it was, one thing is making people pay when you have many active users on your site, another is making them pay to provide a space where it is even hard to get someone to actually do what this option was meant for. I feel like doing something like that it's giving the coup de grace to this site... but you do you

I totally understand your sentiments. However platforms such as this cannot survive without some form of revenue which is why we introduced a premium membership (which is a very modest price and affordable to most). We are always open to suggestions from our users on how we can improve, and in this case, a fair way to generate revenue. We have set up a Suggestons forum for this purpose here: MoocLab Suggestions - NEW

Hi Lolita,

It looks like you are a Premium member, which means you can send private messages (Mooc doesn't allow sharing contact info otherwise) If you'd still like to study together, please send me a message and we will figure out some scheduling and logistics together.
