About Us

Our Story

Course Hero was founded in 2008 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.
