Add NetTutor to Canvas

MiraCosta’s primary option for free online tutoring for all students is eTutoring through the Western eTutoring Consortium. Another option made available through MiraCosta’s status as an Online Education Initiative pilot college is NetTutor.

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 your class course management system environment (Blackboard or 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 the NetTutor link that this procedure would add to your class.
