Working with an in-person tutor has long been popular among some parents to help their children attain higher grades at important exams or to consolidate learning in specific subjects. Now, out-of-hours learning is rapidly moving online and online tutoring is a regular feature of some children’s education.
In the past, technical difficulties and the lack of a personal connection between tutor and tutee made distance learning difficult to achieve. However the growth and familiarity of face to face communication via Skype, Google hangouts, Zoom etc and the use of visualisers and online whiteboards has led to a revolution in online tutoring that is only just beginning.
A popular combination for tutors is to use the HUE HD Pro visualiser combined with Bitpaper, an innovative and simple to use online whiteboard. With the possibility of multiple pages and infinite space, images captured in the HUE HD Pro can be dragged and dropped into the paper which can then be exported to PDF if required. Free to use and easy to get started with, online tutors around the world are discovering that Bitpaper makes an the ideal partner for the HUE HD Pro camera.
The tutor uses the HUE HD Pro visualiser to share methodologies or information with the tutee where the material is not able to be shared easily digitally. For example, the tutor can use it to show to use a scientific calculator, share text from a book, use flash cards or play with math manipulatives online. Another visualiser on the student’s side can further facilitate the possibilities of this two way communication. If you are an online tutor and are using the HUE HD Pro, we’d love to hear from you how it is enhancing your teaching!
Images captured by the HUE HD Pro Visualiser can imported into the Bitpaper being used in the lesson to further reinforce and illustrate a technique or explanation, or to share set work instantly with the tutor.
