Hello, everyone! This is my first post on AN, after years of lurking.
As you can tell by the title, I'm wondering about whether or not anyone has attempted to organize any online 'study parties' or the like - basically, getting together with others over Skype, Tinychat, or other sites in order to learn together. The reason that I find this appealing is because, admittedly, there are moments when motivation escapes me - I feel like being part of a group will propel me forward when I'd rather be watching YouTube or browsing Tumblr, haha.
The ideal situation would be to find people studying the same topics, so that an actual exchange of information/teaching each other can happen, but I feel that simply checking in with others would be good for me (and others who, like myself, are easily distracted). Would anyone else be into this type of thing? I've already got ideas swirling around about how to put it together, but I don't know that it would be worth fleshing out if no one else cares.
Please let me know if you're interested!
