Shmoop is the modern answer to Cliff’s Notes, offering guides for everything from historical events to literature. Everything is broken down into easy-to-understand segments. For example, literature guides feature information such as character descriptions and quotes. In addition, users whose budget allows can explore gated areas including teacher guides and standardized test prep guides. Shmoop has a busy-looking, stacked tri-navigation bar with links to basically every category of information on the site. The design uses bright, exciting, youth-friendly graphics and colors. With the homepage’s magazine layout, visitors can quickly see snippets of a lot of different areas of the site.
