eNotes is a student and teacher educational website founded in 1998, that provides material to help students complete homework assignments and study for exams.[2]

Based in Seattle, Washington in the United States, eNotes specializes in lesson plans, study guides and literary criticisms and is widely cited across the web. Its also hosts active forums where students can ask educators academic questions.[3]

The website's material mainly focuses on literature and history, though the company offers a variety of different topics within the humanities. A network of over 1,000 teachers and professors contributes much of the content.[4] It is different from other online subscription education services in that an in-house publishing team edits uploaded works mainly for grammar and formatting. Materials range from expert to questionable.[5][6] With its subscription model, the company bootstrapped its way to profitability and claims about 750 new sign-ups on a weekday during the school year.[4] According to internet analytics firm Quantcast.com, the site is accessed by more than 7,000,000 unique visitors each month.[7]
