“We’re very grateful to have such an inspiring team of experts working with us for such an important mission,” said Co-founder and Course Hero CEO Andrew Grauer. “We hear about what students need directly, but in order for them to get the most out of their education, it is critical to work side-by-side with educators and technology experts as well. Our hope is to have a full spectrum of the challenges in learning and make them function better by harnessing the full capabilities of technology.”
