A New Chapter for Chegg

Online textbook rental outfit Chegg is ready to take on a heavier load. The site is announcing today plans to offer a broader range of student services such as course selection advice, homework help and personalization. The expansion, taking advantage of its acquisition of CourseRank and Cramster, will advance Chegg’s social ambitions. “We know students’ class schedules, professors’ required reading and other materials in the class that are used,” said CEO Dan Rosensweig. “We have that history….Nobody else is able to bring this kind of personalized, relevant experience to students.”

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
