Actually, I think your concept and idea is 3 very good. However, I’m concerned that the design may not attract to 4 our target customers. It seems a slightly old-fashioned and general design. We have collected some suggestions from our users and retailers.

    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.
