TECH TALK TUESDAY
Engineerica Systems is pleased to present Accudemia Tech Tip Tuesday. On Tuesdays at 1 pm EST, Accudemia clients can join a session to learn about a quick, useful topic from one of our Support Specialists. Each Thursday we’ll follow up Tech Tip Tuesday with a blog recapping that week’s topic. If you’re an Accudemia client and would like to join us for the next session, just email email@example.com.
Asynchronous Tutoring has become very popular over the last year, especially in places such as Writing Centers. Generally, the way it works is a student submits their questions or assignment draft via email or a website form, and a tutor takes a day or two to review the materials, provide feedback, and then sends it back to the student. This type of support can be very convenient, but in the context of a program like Accudemia, the question becomes, how to track these interactions?
Nick Armstrong, a Senior Technical Support Specialist for Accudemia, walked attending clients through the recommended process for tracking asynchronous tutoring in Accudemia. The best way to achieve this tracking is by using appointments, where a student will make an appointment and attach the assignment there. They can also include any relevant information in the notes section. The tutor will then respond using the notes and attachment abilities as well, usually shortly after the appointment time, but that will depend on your center’s specific policies.
Here are some important tips to keep in mind if you want to implement this process in your account:
If you missed the session and want some guidance on implementing this process in your own center, just email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you haven't already, you can sign-up for these weekly sessions at engineerica.com/accudemia-weekly-sessions.
We look forward to seeing you at the next Tech Tip Tuesday!
