The optimal learning destination for every course.
Course Hero was founded in 2006 by a Cornell University student who missed a class and realized there had to be a better way to get caught up than awkwardly asking a stranger for notes. He set out to create a platform where students and experts could share and access the great academic content they needed to succeed, anywhere, at any time.
Today, millions of students take advantage of Course Hero’s supplemental educational resources, which are catalogued by school, course, subject, standardized test and/or book. Whether you need to get through final exams or want to brush up on your French, we have the tools you need to achieve your goals.
We're an online learning library of course-specific study resources
Course Hero is an online learning library where you can access over 25 million course-specific study resources contributed by a community of students and educators. You'll find practice problems, study guides, videos, class notes, and step-by-step explanations for every subject you're studying --- from economics to literature, biology to history, accounting to psychology, and everything in between. We help you quickly find what you need so you can learn deeply.
We believe in supporting study learning, together
The road to graduation is a stressful, debt-ridden uphill battle --- one in which 40% of college students never win. To us that's an epic fail.
That's why we're working closely with educators to help support student learning and complement what's happening in the classroom. We all want to see more students walking up to the podium on graduation day, proud of what they've accomplished, and ready to build great lives for themselves. We aim to help them get there.
