Santa Clara, CA (PressExposure) November 20, 2009 -- Course Hero, a Facebook Partner, is an inquiry-based learning network that attracts thousands of college students, educators and self-learners every day to publish, share and collaborate on academic resources online. Need lecture notes for a missed class or want insightful explanation of the theories and concepts you learn in class? Course Hero's Study Materials empowers users to find a broad and deep set of materials. Course Hero today announced that it has been using Adeptol Viewer for the last few months to offer document viewing functionality within it's learning network.
Adeptol Document Viewer is a light weight ajax and flash based viewer and enables any application to display and interact with different files. It is identical to any reader program, but adds high speed viewing of documents to the web applications easily. It also acts as a document container for embedding PDF, Office documents (including Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Project, and Microsoft Visio documents) in a custom form or Web page. CourseHero users can directly view millions of documents hosted in CourseHero network using the embedded Adeptol Viewer without the need to download any plugins, controls or active x components.
Andrew Grauer, Founder of CourseHero, praises the Adeptol Viewer: "We have been using Adeptol Document Viewer for a few months now, and it's ability to serve millions of documents from a single server with no problems is amazing. CourseHero has more than 5 million documents in the network today, and we needed a Viewer that was not only fast but capable of handling millions of documents being viewed at a single point in time. The Adeptol platform provides all that and support for more than 200 document formats."
CourseHero users can now easily upload and view documents right in any browser using the latest Web 2.0 AJAX techniques based Adeptol Viewer to preview virtually any content in the CourseHero network. The release of the CourseHero integration with Adeptol Viewer is already available to CourseHero users.
