The revolution was not a product of the internet or social media but rather of decades of frustration and bad conditions. It could be argued that social media is what kept the rioters in the know about their peers’ actions, but that will never have a sure answer.

    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.
