The goal of wePapers is to create the world’s largest study group. Here you’ll be able to find papers on just about any subject that you need to study. Reading papers other people have written can expand your knowledge of the topic and shed a different perspective on what you already know.
I have found myself using it to double check I have my formatting right, before I turn in a paper. But it could be a great resource for expanding your thoughts for papers you need to write.
On the left side of the page you’ll find a section called Papers We Like. You’ll find seven papers highlighted there. While I was there, there was a great paper on satire and Mark Twain that rocked my socks. It gave me a perspective that I hadn’t really thought about on Huckleberry Finn.
Have a topic you’d like to learn about in mind? Then the center of the page is for you. Type your topic into the search field and click the Go button. I think you’ll be amazed at the range of topics that come up for the subject you’ve looked up.
Want to contribute? Well you certainly can, but you’ll have to register to do so. Don’t worry registration is a breeze. Click the Sign Up link at the top of the page. Fill in the form with your name, e-mail address, and name of the college or university you’re attending, and then create a password and prove you’re human by filling in the Captcha. After you’ve got that all filled in, you can click the Sign Up button.
You’ll be automatically logged in after clicking the Sign Up button. You’ll be on an invitation page which I skipped by clicking the wePapers logo at the top of the page to return to the main page.
Now there are two ways to contribute to the page you can: become a course leader, or upload your own papers to share with other students. Becoming a course leader means that you’re going to teach other people something, for example, the course I looked at while I was here was Algebra 1. It brings Algebra to life using realistic examples and practical knowledge. So if you have something to teach, this is the spot for you.
To find a course, click Navigate and the scroll down until you see the Course tab. Click the tab, and scroll down past the Google ad, and you’ll see a listing of course offerings. Once you find the course you want, make sure you click the join course link on its page.
Uploading papers is by far the easier way to share your knowledge. Especially if you are crunched for time! Click the Upload button at the top of the page (its green). Then click the Add Files button, choose the file you’d like to upload, and then click the upload button. After you’ve uploaded the file you’ll be asked to fill out a form about it. This form covers basic information like what subject it is about, what style it is, etc.
