Extraordinary Educators Get Star Treatment at Course Hero
Film shorts spotlight success and provide inspiration By PR Newswire

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Oct. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Course Hero, an online learning platform that empowers millions of students and educators to succeed, has launched a new video series to celebrate exceptional educators and provide inspiration for the larger education community.

"Master Educators inspire us every day," said Andrew Grauer, CEO and founder of Course Hero. "They engage students and make learning accessible through innovative approaches to teaching. We're honored to work alongside Dr. Stepanic and Dr. Garg to bring their work to a wider audience, encouraging more educators and students to reach new heights."


CourseHero.com/heroes is a library of short films that dive into the unique perspective, approach and success of elite educators and admirable students.

At launch, the video series featured two master educators whose work is sure to inspire creativity and enthusiasm among peers.

  • University of Virginia's Stanley Stepanic, Ph.D.
    The associate professor of Slavic studies uses pop culture to attract student interest. His Dracula course ranks among the top 10 "must take" classes on campus. More than 600 students enroll each year and 1,600 sign up for the waitlist.
  • University of California - Los Angeles' Neil Garg, Ph.D.
    The award-winning professor of organic chemistry imparts lessons that go far beyond the lab. Through his innovative approach to teaching one of the most notoriously difficult college classes, Dr. Garg helps his students develop problem solving skills. His goal is to give students a feeling of invincibility - to know that they can find the solution to any challenge they face.

The video series also includes films about students that are overcoming the odds to achieve academic success. Featured now are Lisa Diana Misraie, a single mother and first-generation student, and Kaleb Leach, a star athlete who finds purpose beyond the football field.

"Members of our community like Lisa and Kaleb are transforming their lives through knowledge," continued Grauer. "They embody everything we embrace at Course Hero."
