We are getting ready to publish a brand NEW site... So get ready and buckle up!
theCourseForum is an online resource that lets UVA students find out what other students think about the classes they are considering. It's just for students. Designed by students. And run by students. People use theCourseForum to review classes they've taken, compare classes they need to take, learn what other students think about specific professors, and even view grade distributions.
All you need is a valid UVA email address. Once you register, you can submit reviews. Find out what other students are saying about classes you're interested in. And get feedback on specific professors and TAs.
How difficult is the course? Is the professor engaging? What kind of workload can you expect? When all is said and done, is it a worthwhile course? Is it fun? And not that grades are all that matters, but wouldn't you like to know how many As and Bs people earn in the class?
theCourseForum's resources allow you to strategically select your classes. Link up with professors who teach the way you like to learn. Manage your time better. And share your experiences with those who need to know.
At theCourseForum, we believe that people should be able to share their experiences freely. We find that students don't use this information to pick easy classes, or to avoid work. But everyone wants to know if a class is rewarding and worth their time. People talk. We're simply giving you a better way to listen.
Students with a passion for our mission, especially those with website experience, should contact us to ask about how to get involved.
In Fall 2005, UVA students Jeff Bordogna and Alan Webb recognized a need for an online community to help their peers share class experiences. Over the years, this simple tool has evolved into a popular resource for all students. And we continue to grow every day!
