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, at any time, from anywhere.

Today, millions of students take advantage of our educational resources. Whether you need to get through final exams or want to give HTML a whirl, we have the tools you need to achieve your goals.

What We Do

Excelling in today’s world requires a lot of initiative. It’s just not enough to rely on what you learn in class or on the job anymore—sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands to get to the next level.

Course Hero provides a suite of digital educational resources that help you learn as efficiently and effectively as possible. Study like a pro using millions of practice problems and lecture notes with Study Documents. Memorize dates and learn vocab with customizable Flashcards. Still have questions? No problem, our expert Tutors have your back 24/7.

Improved access to knowledge enriches lives and increases future opportunities, so Course Hero connects the best content and subject matter experts with passionate learners to create an environment where anyone can learn what they want, in the way that suits them best.

Changing The Way We Learn

Technology is revolutionizing the way we learn. It enables us to access content whenever and wherever we want, find the individualized support we need to achieve our goals, and expand our professional skills to become better candidates in today’s competitive workforce.
