This bias is seen throughout the article which refers to any views that differ from the author's as "myths." It must be said, however, that the author does not simply declare opposing views as "myths." In fact, his knowledge and work in the field support his strong views.

    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.
