Interesting article but as I seem to search Google, more of these help sites come up. I would have never used or looked for help similar to the service provided above when I was in school. I sincerely believe that is because I am more old school. It was in elementary that we first started to see computers and the internet was unheard of. Students now have the internet as an alternative way to educate themselves. I myself provide a similar service in the sense that I too help students with their homework. I wonder if students today understand the advantage they have over students 15 years ago.
