- As the e-textbook market heats up, renter and online retailer Chegg has launched its new Chegg Textbook Solutions app for iOS and is looking to expand its offerings and become a full-fledged operating system for students.
- The new app acts as a companion to textbooks offering interactive learning assistance to help students find answers.
- CTO Chuck Geiger tells TechCrunch that the company's mission is to reach students across any platform, from smartphones and tablets to laptops and elsewhere.
From the article:
"... This means the company has been adding course reviews and planners, scholarship help, course search and tutoring, as it expands to offer a wider range of student services. On the other hand, CTO Chuck Geiger tells us, those services have little value if students can’t access them across platforms. So, Chegg has been on a mission to provide that access to its services at any time, on smartphones, tablets laptops and every platform in between. ..."
