Robin Good: Course Hero is a platform which allows the creation and delivery of online video courses curated from the best existing published content on that topic.
There are already ready-made courses to access or you can submit a topic that you would like to video-curate into a course.
"You can learn just about anything from YouTube...if you're willing to dig through millions of videos."
From Techcrunch: "Luckily, Course Hero has done the work for you, offering coherent classes by hosting collections of the best educational YouTube videos and other content.
The newly launched courses section of the eduTech startup’s site now has classes in entrepreneurship, business plan development, and programming in a variety of languages.
By drawing from YouTube and other openly available education, Course Hero plans to set up courses for anything it, or you, can think of.
