    Tips on finding your ideal Study Buddy on MoocLab
    MoocLab has hundreds of Study Buddy Members all looking to find their perfect online study partner.

    Here are some tips on finding yours:

    Make sure your profile is complete - By giving detailed information about yourself in your profile, other members will be able to see at a glance if you might be a suitable study partner. When you register as a Study Buddy, fill in as many of the fields as possible, and make sure you let others know more about you in the "about me" field.
    If you have already registered as a Study Buddy, you can always update or complete your profile here.

    Join the Study Buddy User Group - This automatically generates a Study Buddy banner on your Profile Page so others know straight away that you are also looking for a Study Buddy. Also, if you don't join the Study Buddy User Group, you won't come up in the search results. To join, log in and click on your username at the top right of the page. Under "Settings" click on "Join User Groups" and then on "Join Now" next to Study Buddy.

    Upload an Avatar - An Avatar is a picture or image that represents you. When you upload a personal Avatar, it appears next to your Username and on your profile page. Members who have an Avatar stand out more and are much more likely to find a Study Buddy. If you haven't already done so, see how to upload your avatar here.

    Select your search criteria carefully - When you start your search for a Study Buddy, select the "Study Buddy" User Group at the top of the search page. Remember that the more criteria you enter, the less results you will get. So, if you don't find the right person straight away, only put in the criteria that is most important for you. You can always narrow down your search later.

    Get in touch* - If you see a member who looks interesting to you in the search results, get in touch with them to find out more. To do this, just click on "Start a Conversation" or on the blue "+Connect" link. Don't be afraid to contact several potential study buddies to keep your options open.

    Check back often - With new members joining everyday, it's important to check back regularly to see if there are any new Study Buddies you could connect with. The Find a Study Buddy Page always features the latest Study Buddy members.

    Share your experiences - If you successfully find an online study partner, share your story so others can learn how you did it and how you went about studying together.
