Abstract: 

UniCommons.com is a collaborative learning platform for classes and academic content. Pronounced YOU-nee-commons, the name conveys a sense of togetherness in learning. "Uni" is a recognized contraction of "university" and also means "one" in the formation of compound words ("Uni," n.d.). This project focuses on a return to the original meaning of university as "a community of masters and scholars" ("University," n.d., para. 1). "Commons" represents shared ground or a shared road ("Concurrency," 2008) whereby learners at UniCommons.com may share a common platform to develop and present their scholarship.
