We will look at how San Juan College designed tutoring for its Spanish language program. This tutoring allows students to practice reading, writing, and speaking Spanish with a live native Spanish speaker using Canvas and other online tools. This method can also be adapted for many other online courses.
Fully online tutoring could open up a lot of opportunities for students. Scheduling is key though. Instructors, TAs, or peer tutoring would be available for a specific set of time. I think this is a great idea and use of Canvas which could be applied to K-12 or higher ed. I love that you included the video with the tutorial on how to access the tutoring. The visual notes I bet are referenced frequently!
Deactivated user and firstname.lastname@example.org, is this something that you will continue this academic year?
I am glad you liked it. Yes, online tutoring is still being used. This semester we are trying an on-demand schedule for the tutor. Basically the students will make a request through Conversations and the tutor will schedule them. This allows more tutoring times for the students and less time wasted by the tutor.

Great session! Our tutoring center is really interested in trying this type of thing out so we might be hitting you up in the next few weeks with some best practices type questions!
