School is back in session and that means it’s time for homework. Naturally, homework requires studying, lots of it. In fact, the Association of American Colleges and Universities shares when it comes to homework in the higher education realm students should spend about two hours of study time for every hour of class time. So, a full course load of 15 credits would generate around 20 – 30 hours of study time.
You might be wondering where Vuze fits in with homework and studying. The answer is, surprisingly, it fits in quite well. We’ve put together some different ways that Vuze can help you with your homework and help lighten the academic load.
1. Share assignments with study groups
It’s no secret – the torrent protocol makes it easy to share large amounts of data with others, which makes it a natural fit for use among college study groups.
Where other methods of file sharing can have size limitations, P2P does not. Email servers can crash when sending attachments larger than only a few megabytes, not to mention lose them entirely. Flash drives have storage limitations, can become corrupt and pick-up viruses. In comparison, sending links to torrent files is a much more efficient alternative.
Your study group can convert electronic versions of the documents you need to share with one another and create torrent files from them. Seed among the group and stop seeding when you’re study group concludes for the quarter or semester.
2. Use as an academic research tool
Many academic papers and scientific studies are available for free, plus in the public domain. You can use your torrent client to access a world of information and resources to help you with your studies.
Researching content available in open source on sites like sciencedirect.com, isiknowledge.com or springer.com is an excellent way to discover technical and medical journals and other types of academic-related content. Many of these items are also accessible through the torrent protocol.
Forgive the pun, but you’ll have to do your homework and research what is available. Read up on some available torrent sites that we’ve compiled to help get your search started.
3. Access to books in public domain
There are many literary classics that are available in public domain and downloadable as torrent files. Electronic versions are an excellent way to save money and stay on top of your syllabus.
Examples of books that have entered public domain and that are available through InternetArchive.org include:
- Jane Eyre, author Charlotte Bronte
- The Iliad, author Homer
- Moby Dick, author Herman Melville
- Robinson Crusoe, author Daniel Defoe
- A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur’s Court, author Mark Twain
