Add NetTutor to Canvas
MiraCosta’s primary option for free online tutoring for all students is eTutoring through the Western eTutoring Consortium. Another option for our distance education classes is NetTutor, available through MiraCosta’s status as an Online Education Initiative pilot college.
NetTutor provides support for just about any academic subject, up to 24×7 for the most popular subject matter, and is available via a link embedded within Canvas. The link would take students directly to the subject-specific tutoring area with no additional login required. Also with NetTutor, each instructor may specify “Rules of Engagement” that inform tutors about the approach and resources you would like them to use when working with your students.
NetTutor can be added to a Canvas course via the course menu with the following directions. Note, however, that you should first contact Jim Julius to ensure that your subject is available through NetTutor, and to learn how to specify the “Rules of Engagement”.

2- Click the Navigation tab
3- Click the gear icon to the right of NetTutor
4- Select +Enable
5- Click the Save button
A NetTutor link now appears in your course menu.
