Site Pays Students to Share Notes

The UW Madison Daily Cardinal reports on a new website which pays students for note-taking.

Knetwit, the creation of former Babson College fraternity brothers Ben Wald and Tyler Jenks, encourages college students to upload and share study materials for money....

According to the website, Knetwit allows college students and teachers around the world to share notes, ideas, issues and other content from their education....

"It is similar to Facebook, only it has an academic twist to it. It has the whole networking aspect where people can contact one another."...

The website encourages students to participate in note-taking by offering to pay those who post their notes.

Knetwit pays students based on the number of file downloads they receive. Each student's profile contains a User Statistics section, allowing other members to view the downloaded file levels.
