Koofers

When I first saw Koofers home page I was really excited by the possibilities, but in registering for the site with my byu.edu email, I found the only immediate functionality to be an affiliate textbook shopping engine and a bunch of flash games. It appears that they have a rate-your-professor & class scheduling functionality (nothing that hasn’t been done before) and the ability to share flashcards and previous tests from the same class. My initial hope of Koofers being a social platform to share real content and knowledge with students across diverse campuses was failed with the realization it is a pander to lazy students looking for quick and cheap tricks intent on finding the easiest teacher and the easy A.

Koofers, I will not even give you the pleasure of a link. Try again.

I have them at my school and they are awesome. Sorry, your school hasn't gotten their data to Koofers to make it more functional.
