Follow Alice Through the Looking Glass With Course Hero, A Great Learning Tool

The actual costumes from Walt Disney Pictures' Alice Through the Looking Glass 



I received some merchandise and compensation to provide my honest opinions about Course Hero.  

As the child of an educator, a mom with a school aged child, and someone who trains professionals, how people learn fascinates me. In elementary school, middle school and high school, I did well rather easily. Then in college and law school, when there was so much information to retain and comprehend, and so many other things to distract me, I had to implement techniques to assist me. I used mnemonics and other aids to help me.

Most of my study aids were self-developed.  Preparing those tools took a lot of time. While some of that time was worthwhile, as I was doing it, I knew had to be a better way.

Course Hero May Be The Most Innovative Study Aid Tool


As a working mom, I am all about identifying tools that can help my kids succeed, in part because I am so busy that I imagine there will come a time when I won’t be able to do homework with them. I also refuse to be the helicopter mom who is doing their college homework because as much as I love them, I want them to be self-sufficient!

In my opinion, Course Hero is a student, and working mom’s, dream. It has turned some of the world’s most fascinating novels into infographics that help readers quickly understand a book. It’s not a replacement for reading. Rather, it is like providing students with a visual summary that ties the book together. If read before the book, it whets their appetite. Course Hero also provides study aids and online tutoring. Anything that promotes reading makes me happy.

So, Course Hero is a huge win in my book!

For that reason, I was thrilled when Course Hero contacted me to help them publicize their product. I was also thrilled for another reason. Their promotional product featured little known facts about Alice in Wonderland Through the Looking Glass and I had the opportunity to get a sneak peek of the movie “Walt Disney Pictures' Alice Through the Looking Glass”  in Orlando earlier this month and learned production secrets from Suzanne Todd, the movie’s producer.
