Chegg, Inc. (NYSE: CHGG), the leading student-first online learning company, today announced a global partnership with Calm, in which Chegg Study Pack users will gain free access to Calm Premium’s subscription service with hundreds of hours of content in seven languages. This includes guided meditation for anxiety and stress, over 100 sleep stories, and exclusive music tracks to cultivate focus and relaxation.
Chegg Study Pack, which is used by students in over 180 countries around the world, is a monthly subscription service offering learning support such as practice tests, and math and writing help. Calm has been downloaded over 100 million times since its launch in 2012, making it the world’s most downloaded meditation app.1 In a recent poll, Chegg users ranked it among the top 15 of their favorite brands.
The recent ‘Student Behavior Study,’ commissioned by Chegg’s Center For Digital Learning in partnership with Hanover Research, which polled more than 2,000 higher education students in the U.S., U.K., and Canada, found that nearly three-quarters (74%) of students tend to feel anxious about their classes and schoolwork, and 68% do not get enough sleep.2 Earlier this year, the Chegg.org Global Student Survey, covering 21 countries, showed that nearly one-third of students worldwide (32%) felt that their mental health had worsened since returning to campus after lockdown restrictions. The same study revealed that 39% of students around the world with study-related debt or loans lose sleep over it, and a quarter (25%) feel so anxious over their study loan that they have sought medical help.3
“For more than a decade, Chegg has developed a robust understanding of student behavior and what helps them learn best. We know that students today feel overwhelmed, stressed out, and anxious. These are all things that can get in the way of academic success,” said Mitch Spolan, Executive Vice-President for Marketing Services at Chegg. “Not only can meditation help reduce stress and anxiety, it can also increase learning concentration and improve attention span.4 That’s why we are proud to partner with Calm, a favorite brand of Chegg students. By supporting students in all aspects of their lives, we can allow them to focus more on getting the most out of their higher education.”
“We’re excited to partner with Chegg to help students focus better, reduce stress, and manage their anxiety,” said Fergal Walker, Calm’s Vice-President of Partnerships. “Our approachable, engaging mindfulness content will support students not only every day, but also during big moments including midterms, finals, and more.”
