Case Study I’m writing a proposal for my grandmother Mary Ellen, who wants to keep in better touch with her family. The proposal argues that to solve this problem, Mary Ellen should buy a computer and set up internet and email accounts. Things to know about Mary Ellen: She’s a great typist. She doesn’t like to spend money. She loves to keep in touch with her grandchildren and wishes they would write her more letters. She lives in Florida and her grandkids live in Texas, Georgia, and California. All of her children and grandchildren use email. She’s smart but has never been to college.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    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.
