We’re building CollegeBlender to aggregate and curate social media content produced by college students. Today, collegeblender encompasses the web’s largest collection of blogs and forum posts produced by .edu authenticated students. We are developing the platform to consume media from more types of social media channels, applying the .edu verification to ensure that what ever piece of data we’re collecting (e.g. a tweet) is produced by a student. This content is then distributed in a number of ways. We’re also developing a suite of white label social media management tools for the higher-ed industry.
One thought on “CollegeBlender – Student-Generated Social Media Segmented By Campus”
How easy is the sign up process?
I found the sign up process a bit difficult since you need a valid school email. What if the userâ€™s school didnâ€™t have one? There should be a note on what is the valid format of the school email.
The message â€œschool not found, please enter your school name:â€ only appears when I have enter a valid school, this should appear on the first time a user access the sign up page.
What does CollegeBlender appear to be at first glance?
At first glance, CollegeBlender looks like a campus based social network site.
What is not clear when you first visit?
The sign up process is not that clear, it should be better if the user can type in all his school information and the site will be the one to verify if it is valid or not.
What is confusing about the site?
What confusing for me is the bubble on the right side of the web site logo that changes every time the page refreshes. I think it should be place on the bottom of the page to avoid confusion, because sometimes it is an advertisement, sometimes it is a credit to the builder and you didnâ€™t know what really the purpose of that captions.
What do you like/dislike about the UI?
I like the simplicity of the page since this will handle media content of different students. This helps the site load faster.

This is a good idea since this will create unity of different schools, on the other hand this might also cause conflict in between schools because almost everything is broadcasted. If someone posted something that accidentally misunderstood by the other schools, this is a big trouble.
Overall the idea is great and Iâ€™m excited meeting my co-alumni on this site.
