Kyle Gerrity and Scott Kolb, founders of 'Slader,' created a solution for students requiring homework help. The company began when they were frustrated with assignments and shared solutions over a fax machine. Today, the one-year-old company has built a company and a service that lets students access and share original answers and work for high school assignments.

Slader stipulates that it's not a site that endorses cheating, it is actually a crowdsourced approach to education. The philosophy of the company is one that believes that "students are responsible for their own education." Slader allows students to discuss questions specifically pertaining to subject matters with other peers and classmates who join the discussion or topic.

On their philosophy of Slader, "it should be about individual student comprehension and conceptual understanding. Slader allows students to share their tutorials and expertise with their peers. It’s a study group based in the twenty-first century."
