Hoot.Me turns Facebook into a Study Room in Seconds

Hoot.me LogoEver thought your Learning Management System (LMS) chat room is really lacking features, especially for math courses? Wanted to find an Algebra study partner online at 2 a.m.? Need to host a virtual office hours convenient to students? A new startup on the market is offering free online space for studying, office hours, and group projects through a familiar interface for most students, Facebook. The new Facebook app called Hoot.me claims to, “Switch Facebook into Study Mode.” Hoot.me lets you host a private or public room without anyone having to be Facebook friends. It has an easy to use chat with a simple to use math editor built into the chat, with a convenient preview before you post. The ability to make it more personal with video conference for up to 8 people is a great addition, very similar to Google+ Handouts. The history of a room stays around for you to start back where you left off or invite users back to the same room later. Hoot.me says to keep an eye out on an update version soon with the ability to screen share and record sessions, plus additional feedback from users incorporated. Check out my tour and trial of hoot.me: http://wp.me/p10Pdu-uH . Why not give it a try today because it’s FREE!
