About Us

NotesVilla is a user-friendly platform where students and educators come together to establish a sense of community and share high-quality information on a diverse and broad range of academic topics.

Individuals are able to upload verified original study notes on the platform for which they earn cash and rewards. Learners are able to seek out quality higher education notes and other revision resources to supplement academic papers.

NotesVilla is the product of inspiring conversations between its founder, Zain Elhassan and his father, a renowned Professor Emeritus of Math’s and Science. Aware of the many challenges faced by students, they wished to help learners find high quality supplementary, on-line, education resources.

And so, in 2018, NotesVilla was conceived and created - an educational platform which fosters a sense of community and shared learning - a place where students can find the resources they need to excel academically.

 We invite you to create a NotesVilla account and join our learning community.
