Shmoop University

Shmoop (www.shmoop.com) is a digital publishing company with a sense of humor. Shmoop's teaching method revolves around the basic idea that learning is often too hard, so we carry gallons of academic WD-40 to squirt on the tracks whenever we can. The company owns 100% of its content and presents both a consistent voice and a distinctive product offering. Shmoop's Online Courses balance a fun, approachable style with academically rigorous curriculum to help students understand how subjects relate to their daily lives.

All content is written and edited by a team of educators and experts, with degrees including MA, MFA, and PhD. Shmoop's founder and CEO both attended Stanford's Graduate School of Business; the Chief Editor has a PhD in Literature from Stanford with years of university teaching experience; and the Lead Curriculum Editor is an experienced teacher with a Master's in Education.

Shmoop has been offering Online Courses since 2013, and has over 14 million monthly users among all of its products, including Learning Guides and Test Prep as well as Online Courses. The company has been honored by many organizations, including The Association of Educational Publishers, Tech & Learning, and EdTech Digest, and is ranked among the top 200 most-visited websites in the U.S.
