Great platform to share notes !

What do you like best?

I use it whenever I take a class outside of work. It gives you the ability to find and share notes from former students for the same class

What do you dislike?

sometimes the preview of documents you want to unlock is misleading. You might think you are unlocking the right documents but because of the way the original contributor of the referenced the documents, it might not be what you expect.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great place to archive and gather notes from previous and present students

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is a platform you use as a student or if you are part of the school staff to share documents and notes about classes already taken or in progress. the only way this affects your business is if a school staffer would want to integrate it as part of the tech stack for sharing documents with the students.

Review for Course Hero

What do you like best?

I love that it has answers to questions from literally any subject in any and every field! The quantity of content covered is seriously amazing. I love how detailed the explanations are as well. It is a great way to prepare for tests.

What do you dislike?

The pricing structure is insanely high. To access most of the questions, you would need to pay a really high amount and that has nothing to do with how much or how less you use the website.

The formatting of the website is not so good, either.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are willing to pay a high price, go for it! Also, it is easier to use "ctrl+f" to find what you need on this as well, since it can be difficult to find the question you are looking for because of the formatting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used this as a reference material for exams and I generally have my students look at this as well. It is quite good but honestly, you can find better answers out there with a really low/no cost.

What Study Tools solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Great resource for students

What do you like best?

I'm able to access documents from past years in order to prep for exams. I also like how I'm able to upload a document and in return, I get credits that are applicable to get documents from the site. What I also like about coursehero

What do you dislike?

The monthly subscription is too expensive. I've only utilized the downloading documents and not really familiar with the tutoring services. Maybe advertising that more can help reach more users like me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have prices for certain amount credits. For example $1 for 5 credits.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Not applicable. Haven't solved ay business problems are you solving with Course Hero yet.

Great For Reviewing & Homeworkd

What do you like best?

All of the different study and homework options make it a good website to use to assist in homework and studying. The tutors are very helpful for assignments in which there is not much information on the site. The rewards and scholarship options are also great for helping students find potential ways to pay for school.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the lack of textbook solutions. Compared to other resources, textbook solutions are a huge factor when purchasing online study tools and it's hard to justify the price when Chegg has multiple options.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits Course Hero provides are that they have multiple assignments uploaded from previous semesters that assist in learning the material, but without the textbook solutions to many upper level books, it is still difficult to justify.

Course Hero has saved me a Few times

What do you like best?

The ability to find old lab reports and homeworks via typing in your high school or university and professor. If you upload your own work as well, you are allowed a certain amount of free views.

What do you dislike?

Every time you view a document, even if it isn't what you needed, you lose that view and now have one less view. You also have to upload many of our own documents in order to get a few free views

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's expensive.

Just get rid of the middleman

What do you like best?

I liked the concept of crowd sourcing answers and that multiple perspectives had the potential of adding depth to a problem and solution. I liked the flashcards because thats my own personal style so having them done already was great. I think its smart to exchange student material for their access to coursehero.

What do you dislike?

The amount you have to comb through and the amount you have to wait in between asking a question and waiting for a tutor. Also the fee is 100+ but it doesn't really give you much accessibility. I think if students and tutors had direct contact, it would be easier to get answers in a timely manner which would create more usefulness.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would opt for udemy or codeacademy or even studygate. If you do choose to go the route of coursehero, have a lot of time on your hands as communication can be slow.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I had used it to refine some skills needed towards a project
