Start creating interesting contents for students now!

Dear all,

We're pleased to announce that we've just released our new "Learning Tips" feature.
You can use it to share news clippings, study tips, cultural tidbits and other pieces of information that students might find interesting. It's quite similar to the the General Notices function but allows students to leave comments on it, and so we're hoping it will be become a more social area where users can exchange their opinions or share their thoughts on a common topic.

Incidentally, because the General Notices feature only allows one-way communication it should be used primarily for lesson-related announcements in future.

The articles you post through Contents will be searchable. In future we'll definitely feature popular articles in one way or another, so we hope it will serve as another channel for you to promote yourself and get students.

However, please don't post articles which primary purpose is to advertise yourself or your courses. Post information that would be genuinely beneficial for students. Cafetalk reserves the right to delete any articles that it deems to be inappropriate.

So if you have information you'd like to share go ahead and try it out!
Just log-in and click "Learning Tips" on the left menu.

If you have any questions,feel free to contact us.

Thank you!
