Mixable is an easy-to-use online system that follows a social networking model already familiar to students. It allows students to easily hold conversations and share course resources.
Users can upload and share documents and photos, and thanks to Mixable’s integration with Dropbox those files can be accessed from virtually anywhere.
Students have complete control over their privacy in Mixable. They may choose their level of visibility and interaction within a group and customize their notification settings. Private study groups or public interest groups may also be created.
Mixable ties in with course registrations and creates course groups automatically -- just log in, connect to a course, and start sharing.
Tied in to the BoilerCast lecture capture system, any recorded lectures will automatically be imported into the Mixable group without any extra effort.

Dr. Gabriella Weaver is using Mixable for online course discussion in her "flipped" classroom.
