Chunky paragrap hs Web-friendly font ; Suggestion: Verdana, 12 (#2) point for body text; 14 pt bold for page titles (#3); 12 bold for headings Good topic sentences ; one idea per paragraph Useful, clear headings (tip: More space above than below headings. Use Shift- Enter to create a “non-breaking” space) Bullets if appropriate Highlighted keywords Make sure your text doesn’t run up to the edge of tables/cells or images. Ask Important stuff goes at the top of web pages to encourage viewers to read on. It’s also “catchy” to have a small graphic near the top to catch the eye.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
