Social-Studying Web Site, GradeGuru, is Closing
April 9, 2012
A start-up that tried to make studying more social is closing its doors.
GradeGuru, the social-studying Web site run by McGraw-Hill Higher Education, has announced that it will close its doors on April 29.
The service, which was part of a group of Web sites putting a Facebook-like spin on studying, gave students small rewards for uploading their class notes. Users earned points for sharing popular notes and redeemed them for cash and gift cards.
