Notre Dame College has joined 42 other Ohio universities and colleges as a member of the e-Tutoring Collaborative, the largest free online tutoring collaborative in the country. NDC students have access to online tutoring services at no additional cost.
The new service will be available in addition to face-to-face tutoring in the Dwyer Learning Center. It allows students to interact with tutors while away from campus and outside of the Center’s regular business hours.
The students will have access to e-Tutoring in math, accounting, anatomy and physiology, biology, chemistry, statistics, and writing. Additional academic disciplines will be implemented as the program expands.
At www.etutoring.org, students can access help in several ways. They can use the “Offline Questions” to leave a specific question for a tutor who will respond within 48 hours; they can meet a tutor in an interactive, online session through “eChat”; and they can submit a draft of a paper to the “Online Writing Lab” and receive feedback on their work.
Throughout the week, students can receive real-time online tutoring sessions. Utilizing a camera, microphone and whiteboard, tutors from participating institutions assist students as they work through their mathematical or science concepts, for example. Students can also post questions that do not require immediate answers.
Writing students can utilize the e-Tutoring platform by uploading papers for review. Papers, written for any undergraduate course, may be reviewed by trained tutors from any of the participating colleges and universities, who make suggestions to writers, pointing out areas for improvement. Grammar questions may also be posted.
A clearinghouse of electronic academic resources is available when students access the e-Tutoring website via the student’s home university page. Hours of availability vary but generally tutors are available from 9 a.m. until 11 p.m., seven days per week.
