A forum in the style of the old PHPBB Web forums.
Split into topics/faculties/courses or whatever, it'll allow students a regimented and structured space to discuss things that can be properly moderated by students. It will allow students to share things on a different medium.
Examples of things it will be incredible useful for:
-Lost property on nights out (perhaps some sort of tagging system?) -Another place to give information to students regarding any topic.
-A way to gather information from students in a more passive manner.
-Course Information (put into sub-topics, ofc)
- It'll also allow new students and freshers to have access to a huge repository of information immediately without having to go through countless different channels and random useless faucets of information. And for students just joining courses, they can have access to information that previous students have posted already. Otherwise it can just be a huge online discussion forum for students. about whatever.
These are just a few of the things it would be useful for, obviously, were it to win, it would need to be expanded upon and developed.
