How the humble note passing system has changed with recent technology. Instead of having to physically pass hand written notes around, students can use Klassmating instead, a new app that focuses on that exact purpose.

It’s a little more mature than that, though, offering a more useful type of note passing. Ever wanted to discuss something about a class anonymously? This is the kind of thing that Klassmating enables. Users can discuss things via a message board for each class while still maintaining a certain level of anonymity.

This anonymity won’t be a potential problem, however, as Klassmating only supports certain universities at the moment due to its need for an .edu email address to sign up. Harvard, Stanford, Yale, MIT and UC Berkeley are the establishments covered for now with more set to be added.

Klassmating is certainly a different way of communicating! Why not give it a shot today? It’s free.

Tuition Tab strikes me as an app that might have begun as a joke—and ended up as something that could possibly force truant professors to change their habits. Developed by college student Logan Moore, Tuition Tab keeps track of how late your professor is for class each day, as well as when classes are outright cancelled. Moore remarks that he was frustrated by paying for classes, only to have them cancelled:

I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t mind when class is canceled but I also would like a reimbursement for something I paid for but didn’t get. Tuition Tab allows you to enter your Tuition information and it then gives you a running total of how late your professor is and how much of your tuition they have wasted. There is also the “Class was Canceled” button.

Oh, and the funniest part? At the end of the semester, you can generate an invoice to send to your professor and university requesting reimbursement for your “lost” tuition.

I feel obligated to point out that tuition is based on far more than how many hours you sit in a classroom—you’re paying for all manner of resources and services that your university lets students use for “free.” And professors are allowed sick days too, right? Still, Tuition Tab is an ironically amusing app that just might get you some results. I doubt that your university will refund you, but as Moore points out: fifty emails complaining about the instructor’s attendance are good incentive for them to change their habits.
