Fort Lee, NJ, United States, 2007/04/23 - 1WebImage, Inc. launches TopicHive.com, a new web portal designed to promote collaborative learning among students and researchers.
1WebImage, Inc. has announced the launch TopicHive.com - a free to use online portal established to help users exchange ideas, share thoughts, and jointly research various topics.
The portal is intended for teachers and educators who can use it as an excellent tool to create learning opportunities beyond the classroom as well as for students and researchers who need to exchange ideas and materials with other people interested in the same topic.
TopicHive.com has various features designed to enhance the learning experience, allowing users to:
• Start and manage a new topic of their interest
• Upload documents with relevant information and share them with other users
• Start a discussion forum for each topic
• Create a picture gallery and share photos and diagrams
• Create tests and quizzes
"The portal has been designed to provide an engaging online learning experience," says Serge Gusarov, 1Webimage Managing Director. "It doesn’t just provide users with learning materials but also encourages them to actively exchange ideas and promotes collaborative learning."
According to researchers, students are capable of performing at higher intellectual levels when asked to work in collaborative situations. The research also shows that such students perform significantly better on many tests than students who studied individually.
“Using the Internet as a learning tool certainly has a big future” says Serge Gusarov – “we hope that Topic Hive will bring people together by allowing them to jointly research topics and collaborate on their studies no matter where they are located and what schools or colleges they attend”.
