In 2006 Andrew Grauer founded Course Hero in the midst of his own academic journey. As a Cornell University sophomore, he knew firsthand how stressful it was to be a college student, focused on studying, absorbing knowledge, getting good grades, and planning for the future—all while still doing extracurriculars, working, and having a social life.
Andrew realized that continuous performance at the highest level was extremely stressful for both students and educators, and he knew there had to be a better way for everyone to reach their full potential. By starting Course Hero, he set out to build the largest online library of course-specific learning resources—and the largest community of students and educators dedicated to collaborative learning, both inside and outside the classroom.
Today, Course Hero has grown into a platform of more than 10 million students and educators across the globe who are empowered to share and access educational resources every day.
