    If the VCE community increases as much as the HSC or to a significant amount the admins might decide to create a VCE resource section but as the VCE community isn't as great as the HSC population there won't be any point as there will be very little resources.

    If you want resources for certain subjects you could try making a thread for submitting resources or simply PM some other past members.

    yep thats correct. VCE resources is in the pipeline, as long as our VCE member base continues to grow strongly.

    maybe it would increase in size if you had a section dedicated to vce resources though.

    and pming past members is a silly idea. first of all: how are you supposed to know who to PM for resources (ie who did what subjects and if they actually have any suitable notes), secondly: it's wouldn't be much good pming someone, who for example, hasn't logged into BOS for the past 2 years and probably never will again.

    Youtube Addon

    Image Resizer

    And a spoiler button/tag which encapsulates images as well, would save us the screen space. ( Like this )

    Hi,
    I just wanted to say that WikiUni exists already (and exactly for the reasons u mentioned)

    And Im willing to give each country a subdomain for FREE obviously (like en.wikiuni, nl.wikiuni, fr.wikiuni etc)

    Atm theres the it.wikiuni (italian) and we are still workin on its growth, but its active and ready.

    If you guys are interested just contact me with a PM and I can set up the english WikiUni straight away.

    Btw the link is www.wikiuni.net

    C ya :wave:

    Thumbs up Re: What would you like to see on BOS 2007?

    I would like to see only the best concise, straight to the point notes on the site. Some of the resources aren't the best and it would make it alot easier to have only the best ones on the site. Also double ups of information should be looked at - to reduce duplicates...

    I would also like to see for each subject:

    - for each core, topic or chapter specific info:

    e.g. for english adv :

    module A: Hamlet + R & G info including:
    - setting
    - context
    - short plot outline
    - purpose
    - audience
    - characters
    - language
    - audience
    etc etc

    that would make it a lot easier to find what you need so you can compare your own notes to the ones on this website.

    The above would probably only work specifically for the english subjects, but there are other ways the website could set out the documents to allow easier finding...

    Hopefully this makes sense! lol

    What does everyone else think about this?

Bored of Studies does not guarantee that any of these resources are correct, in full etc If you want a set of the best, straight to point, concise, well structured notes without having to sort through all those resources then I recommend you consider Premium resources - this is their aim.

    I also recommend you check out the Biki. It has a range of notes for a lot of subjects set out by the syllabus.
    Without wings - you make some good points here...

    Thanks for letting me know out Premium resources - i don't know much about them!

To have a uni notes section would give BOS a reputation of encouraging plagiarism - a reputation that we already do have in some areas. We have been referred in the past (by schools and in the media) as a cheat site or a "bogus Board of Studies" website. We don't want to encourage this reputation by entering an area where plagiarism is a massive, massive issue.
    There are two issues with university notes and plagiarism and they are worthwhile distinguishing.

    Firstly, a uni student goes to a lecture, takes word-for-word notes and posts them to BOS. That is both plagiarism (it is not the student's own work) and a breach of the Copyright Act (the "word-for-word" aspect of the notes).

    Secondly, a student uses content from BOS in submitted work, without acknowledging the source. That's plagiarism.

    I wouldn't let fear of the second class of plagiarism stop you extending into aiding people at university. All instructional materials run this risk. In that way the media attacks on BOS are most unfair -- textbooks don't get criticised for encouraging plagiarism, despite being the source of most of it.

    Where I would be cautious is with the deeper depth of knowledge required for university. One of the reasons BOS is successful is that there are many people that can help -- from professionals in a field like me, to students that did the subject in previous years, to fellow struggling students. But there isn't the same number of people attached to BOS that know about "CPU scheduling techniques for non-uniform memory access", or many of the other arcana university teaches students.

    I also wonder if using BOS would be a good first tactic for uni students struggling with a particular topic. You are paying massively to be at uni. Take advantage of what you have purchased and attend the consulting session for your subject to get your understanding ironed out one-on-one with an expert. If there is no consulting session with staff then that would be interesting to hear about on BOS. "Ease of access to staff" is one of those things vital to the quality of your education which doesn't appear in any university course guide.
