According to the Urban Dictionary: Course Hero is a guy in the class whose main aim was to gain popularity through taking extra notes. He generally sits in the first of the class and listen to each and every word of the teacher and takes down notes on whatever he speaks. Then he shares the notes in the entire class and also shares them online and publishes it to gain reputation. The guy who does this is called as course hero in the class by the other students in the class.
What is Course Hero online?
On the concept of the traditional meaning of the word Course Hero, a new platform for student’s learning was introduced in 1999 by Andrew Grauer at Cornell University for the welfare of students. It was invented because it is not possible for a student to search different books or websites to find particular information about a topic. If there will be a one stop location for all information, it will be easier for the students to access.
