What academics say


I've found Owlstown especially useful for maintaining my academic activities in a time efficient manner. It's a lot easier to go into Owlstown and update content, add new projects, update courses, etc. than digging through a 10-page HTML file.

I'm so pleased to have found Owlstown! It requires zero coding skills. It knows what academics need--so I haven't had to try to "squeeze" my academic profile into a template that doesn't fit.
