New initiative provides online students with personal, professional tutoring that is face-to-face and in real time using Blackboard Collaborate – something few other universities are doing.
Step into Saint Leo University’s Learning Resource Center (LRC) on University Campus any time coffee is brewing and you can feel the energy of dozens of students in deep academic pursuit, many working one-on-one with an LRC professional tutor.
The LRC has recently expanded its tutoring services so that online students now can receive the same personalized tutoring assistance –tutoring targeted at their specific needs in a variety of classes – in real time.
The only difference is that online students need to brew their own coffee.
