Learning Enrichment Launches “Live” Online College Algebra Tutoring Program
UTB’s Learning Enrichment Center will now provide “live” online tutoring for College Algebra using the ASK Online Tutoring program.
What is the ASK Online Tutoring Program?
ASK online tutoring is a Web-based platform that connects tutors with students via a Web interface, allowing students to seek help at any time and from any location. Students will now be able to access tutoring from anywhere on campus and even from the comfort of their own home at a time that is convenient for them. Students can conduct “live” audio and/or video chats with LE math tutors by downloading Skype, which is free software.
Who can use the ASK Online Tutoring program?
This program is geared towards students enrolled in College Algebra courses, either on-site or online. The program will use UTB’s highly qualified Learning Enrichment math tutors, who have a Master degree in Mathematics, and have been trained to deliver tutoring online.
When can I begin using the online tutoring program?
The program will be made available Summer 2012 to all UTB College Algebra students via their College Algebra courses on Blackboard. Instructions on how to log on (which will be the same as your Blackboard log on) and how to use the program will be provided in the College Algebra courses.
