As the technology is increasing rapidly in the modern days, it leads to revolution in the field of shopping by promoting it to online. As the number of internet users is on a rise, there is a need for the sellers to upgrade their businesses to attract more customers and providing them with better service to withstand the competition in this competitive world.

    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.
