Scott Morris Professor Katherine Kellen English 101 9 June, 2018 I strongly agree with Nicholas Carr in "Is Google Making Us Stupid?", because the internet makes me lazy and dependent on it, my attention span is diminished, and the WEB replaces normal tasks and abilities that establish skills without the assistance of Google. The fact that I can’t have a discussion or confirm facts without consulting Google. I have seen that excessive use(another word) of the WEB causes me to forget to not depend on technology.

    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.
