The Best Resource for Helping Achieve Academic Success

Course Hero is helping to solve the problem of limited access to educational materials and resources. A central online library of resources and material benefits bridges the gap between those who can easily access educational resources and those who can't. This can help to level the playing field in academics, giving all students the same opportunity to excel in their classes. The benefits realized include improved student outcomes, better course comprehension, and better test scores. Additionally, access to a more extensive material selection can help broaden students' learning.

PROS

The most impactful features of the Course Hero platform are the ability to access digital notes, quizzes, and other educational resources from established courses, access to study guides and experts for one-on-one guidance, and the platform’s 24/7 accessibility.The product is designed to be user-friendly and easy to use. Integration with existing business processes is straightforward, with multiple methods to import data and documents and the ability to export documents and data to other systems.

CONS

Yes, I feel a few features could be improved or added in Course Hero. For example, it would be helpful if students could collaborate remotely on projects and share documents on the platform. As it stands now, if students want to work together, they must use an external platform such as Google Docs. I would also like to see an improved user interface and navigation options. Integration with existing business processes in Course Hero can also be difficult. For instructors and students, there may be times when they need to use additional tools in order to access or manipulate data within the platform correctly.

They wont stop billing me

Terrible. I just want to stop the bleeding but they won't quit. It's not fair.

PROS

Nothing. I found the question I was looking to answer, but it was blurred. I then paid to see the answer. It was not college-level. So I canceled. Then charged me again, so I wrote customer service, who claimed that I didn't cancel in time. Now, I'm being charged AGAIN for the 3rd month of not using it. So, I check on the website... my account still not cancelled. GOOD GRIEF! I don't have $100 to throw away on trash. This isn't fair. Maybe one day they'll cancel as I've requested 3 times now?

CONS

THEY REFUSE TO QUIT CHARGING ME!!! UGH!

Short view of Course Hero

PROS

I like the interface which is provided by Course Hero as it is easy to find the courses by filtering the required course from available courses. And the content in the courses are very easy to understand.

CONS

I loved to use the course hero but some times we are unable to find some courses by filtering using instructor.

Best Tutoring and Learning Platform

Course Hero is a popular online learning platform that offers a variety of resources to help students succeed in their courses. I have found the platform to be very user-friendly and the resources to be very helpful. The platform offers a variety of features, such as a course directory, a Q&A forum, and a library of study materials. I have used the platform to find resources for a variety of courses, and I have found the resources to be very helpful in boosting my grades. Overall, I have had a positive experience with Course Hero and would recommend it to other students.

PROS

I found CourseHero to be an invaluable resource during my time in college. I was able to find study guides and materials for almost all of my classes, which made studying a breeze. I also loved the fact that I could upload my own study materials and help other students who were struggling in my classes. Overall, I found CourseHer to be an incredibly helpful and user-friendly website. The flexibility to choose my own study schedule.

CONS

There is no clear way to contact CourseHero customer service. I had to search online to find a customer service phone number, and even then, the wait time was very long. Additionally, the site is difficult to navigate and doesn't have a lot of features that would make it easier to use.

Reason for choosing Course Hero

I had wasted my money on studypool.
