Launching in the fall, students at 20 OhioLINK post-secondary institutions will use TutorOcean to easily connect online with trained tutors in a wide range of academic subject areas
May 11th, 2021 – Ottawa, Ontario, Canada – TutorOcean (www.tutorocean.com), one of North America’s fastest-growing EdTech companies, announced today that it has been selected to support OhioLINK’s eTutoring program, which provides online tutoring to undergraduate students at 20 Ohio 2- and 4-year institutions at no cost to students.
TutorOcean enables college and university students to easily discover, book, and connect with campus support services. It helps student support teams to provide a greater impact on a student’s learning lifecycle to ensure they reach their full academic potential.
“We are excited to be partnering with the OhioLINK consortium,” says Will Li, CEO and Co-Founder of TutorOcean. “The success of the eTutoring program speaks to how institutions are adapting to the new learning environment to assist students with access to key learning support services beyond the typical on-campus academic support center hours.”
OhioLINK is Ohio’s academic library consortium, but also manages collaborative services aimed at reducing the cost of higher education for Ohio students.
“The eTutoring program helped nearly 2,400 students last year,” said Amy Pawlowski, Executive Director of OhioLINK. “We look forward to being able to offer students and tutors better user experiences and technical support through the TutorOcean platform.”
TutorOcean will provide a single platform for OhioLINK eTutoring’s services. Students can set up accounts, filter tutor profiles, easily book a resource that fits their needs and utilize the platform to meet with their tutor. Students will also be able to leverage TutorOcean’s asynchronous workflow to submit writing assignments for feedback on common college-level composition problem areas.
OhioLink eTutoring’s tutors will appreciate access to TutorOcean’s virtual classrooms with built-in whiteboards, collaborative teaching tools, instant messaging, and live video providing an ideal interactive learning environment. To ensure the transition to the TutorOcean platform goes smoothly, eTutoring’s tutors will receive onboarding and training from a dedicated world-class TutorOcean support team.
