Rhea has many facets, and a single page is certainly not enough to describe them all. But since everybody is busy, here is a quick summary.

How to Use Rhea

Student Contributed Learning Material

One of the core functions of Rhea is to enable students to create and share learning material with other students (and the rest of the world!). There are many different types of learning material, such as:

  • Collective Problem Solving: sharing solutions on a common page and giving each other feedback is a great way to help each other learn!
  • Tutorials written by students. In particular, you might want to take a look at the math tutorials written by the Math Squad.
  • Bonus point student projects: a great way for instructors to encourage their students to do more, and for departments to scout for hidden talent among their students!
  • Lecture Notes: taken by students and neatly typed.
  • Student-led Recitations Notes
  • How to's: detailed instructions written by students who learned it the hard way and want to share their newly gained knowledge with the rest of the world.

Here are a few notable pages created by students:


  • Assimi: a visual text search engine. Enter your keyword search in the Assimi field in the left-side-bar and see the connections between your search results.
  • Dropbox: convenient electronic homework collection and file storage.
  • Double-blind peer review system: enables students to grade each others homework or project reports.
  • Roar: Online test/homework taking software developed by students (beta version).

Various Programs and Initiatives

  • The Math Squad: students writing math tutorials to help other students.
  • Peer Legacy: students sharing reflections and advice about the classes they took, for the benefit of future students.
  • Collective Table of Formulas: all formulas in one place, along with cross-links to related Rhea pages!
  • Liaison Program: alumni and Industry partners sharing their advice with students.
  • Virtual Poster Sessions: increase the impact of your poster session by posting it online for future reference and dissemination.
  • Class Wikis: a central repository of class wikis, facilitating cross-campus communication and coordination.

Group and Project Pages

Student groups, special projects, and researh groups can create a Rhea page to coordinate the activities of the group, facilitate communications, and reach out to the Purdue community and beyond. Here are some group pages:
