Note that NO punctuation precedes a quote in this instance, as the quote simply and logically fits into and COMPLETES your own sentence.

    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.
