Academic Room
Description Academic Room is an online platform that was developed at Harvard University to facilitate interdisciplinary engagements among scholars and researchers around the world. Their mission is to curate and disseminate scholarly resources, which are organized in over 10,000 academic sub-disciplines.

They share the conviction that easy and unimpeded ability to obtain quality educational resources should be a right and not a privilege. The platform allows academics, researchers and students to create highly specialized portals for their subfields. These portals can be enriched with professional directories, scholar profiles, video lectures, bibliographies, journal articles, books, reviews, images, ancient manuscripts and audio recordings.

    My daughter received a grant for a short language course in Czech Republic. I'm trying to raise funds for her airfare. A friend suggested crowd sourcing i'm not familiar with this, but we really need help so she can push thru with the language course.

    Many thanks for your time.
