GOODSEMESTER: Just this week, GoodSemester opened up its beta launch of a site that aspires to be bigger than an LMS--a social platform for sharing class notes, hosting discussions and (for teachers) managing grades. This two-year startup will be interesting to watch. Founder/CEO Jason Rappaport funded the company by using his fourth-year tuition dollars (he graduated from Lehigh University in three). (In his other life, Jason is webmaster and owner of the Legend of Zelda fansite, Zelda Universe; he coaxed many Zelda fans into helping build GoodSemester). Very nifty grading features (you can change your class average by literally dragging the curve.) It comes with a monthly subscription plan ($5/students, $25/prof). No venture money at work here!
