everyone everywhere, anytime. In what ways has this mission been successful? In what ways has it not been successful? Wikipedia has been successful in providing a lot of information to people that maybe wouldn’t have been there. According to the text “Wikipedia is a giant wiki that functions much like an encyclopedia (Bowles, 2010)”. Wikipedia can also be changed by random people whom is searching their site. It contains a lot of information from books, articles and etc. that could be great resources. But, it is not successful because most people want use it because they can’t actually trust all the information that is posted. Because people are constantly changing information there is always room for errors. And because of these issues it is not a good source to use while attending school unlike traditional encyclopedias.

    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.
