How To Make Uni Group Projects Work

The first week of a new semester at university is one of excitement and anticipation. New classes, new professors, new binders (we were are nerds) – what could be better? The professor starts to go through the assignments you’ll be tackling and you begin to make promises you’ll never keep about how this semester you’ll start working on these projects well before the due dates.

Life is good for a few wonderful moments, but then the professor moves to the next slide and you see those two dreaded words in black and white pixels:

Group Project

Your life flashes before your eyes and you die a thousand deaths. You see the point of group projects – in an ideal world it would teach you how to work with an engaged team – but you know that these things almost never work out as you’d like.

Invariably you’ll have at least one group member that is some version of flaky: sometimes it’s a social loafer who says and does just enough to remind you that they’re there, other times they just disappear without a trace. Either way, the slack must be picked up by the rest of the group.

Even if everybody is appropriately engaged (lucky you!), arranging times for group meetings in between different class schedules, part time jobs, band practice, cricket training, etc. is nearly impossible. How can you make it all work?

Enter Blrt.

It’s as easy as talking

Reviewing documents as a group is difficult. Assembling in one place at the same time is an impossible dream but Blrt keeps all of your work in one place where each group member can review and comment in their own time.

Say one of your group projects is an essay. You can drop the most recent draft into Blrt and walk your group mates through the changes as you talk, point and draw over the document.

If your group-mates have any feedback, they can either reply with their own Blrt (the document from your Blrt will automatically load for them to speak over) or fire off a quick text message within the conversation.

No more hiding, no more excuses – everything is right there in a free mobile app that makes staying in touch a breeze.

Anybody can watch your Blrts

Even if your group mates don’t have the app, they can still view your Blrts within Google Chrome so there is truly no escape!

Likewise, your professors can view any Blrts that you send them for feedback.

About Blrt

Blrt helps you get your point across quickly by allowing you to talk, point and draw over images, documents and websites. The resulting video-like recording is called a Blrt.

Your Blrts require much less bandwidth than video and can be shared with anyone on mobile or desktop. This makes Blrt ideal for both collaboration and the creation and sharing of dynamic content, as public Blrts can be embedded into any webpage.

Once recorded, Blrts are stored in the cloud and are exchanged with others in a conversation-like fashion. A record is kept of the exchange, and new parties and media can be added at any time.

Blrt shifts time and place, allowing users in a conversation to participate in their own time. In an era where activity-based working and distributed teams are commonplace, Blrt is revolutionising the way people interact to get things done.
