The Problem: The entire education landscape is undergoing tremendous change. Tuition costs have skyrocketed, course offerings have grown and increasingly gone digital, and the gap between the skills required to land a job and skills provided by college courses is widening. For students, navigating the path of choosing colleges, scholarships, courses, supplemental learning aids, internships, and ultimately a career, is nothing short of daunting. For educators, concerns about academic integrity and protecting intellectual property (as students turn more and more to digital solutions) are at an all-time high.

Chegg’s Educator program aims to help students achieve better learning outcomes by investing in the learning content that students value most; created by educators they trust.  Educators (e.g., professors, instructors, teachers) deserve to be compensated for the content they create and to be able to extend their content to audiences beyond the walls of the university or institution.
