Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

College just got a little easier. I said, a little. But sometimes a little goes a long way.

Koofers.com is a college-sharing website that enables students to share class notes and professor ratings, find the cheapest textbooks and even create their ideal schedule. Entrepreneur.com calls it simplified sharing.

The company launched on Virginia Tech’s campus in 2007 and in that first year became the third ranked visited website for Virginia Tech students, behind MySpace and Facebook according to Techcrunch.

Now, Koofers.com has over 2,000 participating universities across the country, and almost 400,000 student members. Koofers Inc. continues its pursuit to make college classes a little more manageable by aiming to partner with even more universities.

Koofers.com is one among several online college study aid sites, including cramster.com, sparknotes.com, and coursehero.com. Though some) have wondered how ethical these note-sharing sites may be, Koofers.com works directly with universities to ensure the integrity of the information on its site. It also remains free to students and generates its revenue by receiving a commission from the companies who sell textbooks through its site.

The following video, taken from Techcrunch, will walk you through how to use the koofers.com website and the benefits this company offers college students, from small community colleges, to big name universities.
