|Description||College student network|
locAZu is the college student network. It enables students to connect to each other and get what they need to get through school from books to parties.
The site began in March of 2009 and was originally based around the buying, selling and trading of textbooks between students across local campuses in Canada.
In October of the same year the locazU community began to grow in size and strength on the back of steady user-base increases within a few major universities in British Columbia and Ontario. In November, the site became Canada’s largest nation-wide student portal by providing access to city-wide events at each school in the country.
During February 2010 and using a skeleton staff, “The locazU Crew” began work on a Micro-Tutoring module aimed at allowing students to get instant access to tutorial, homework and assignment questions. The system also allows for students to generate income based on their uploading of tutorials, class notes, flash cards and study guides.
