Participants will learn how in an environment of fixed resources and hard-to-reach students, one college with nine locations established a Skype tutoring program. Discussion will include the rationale, successes and challenges of designing, implementing and assessing a remote tutoring program.

The session will begin with participants making and discussing a wish list for a remote tutoring program. This will transition to a PowerPoint presentation with information about the priorities and design of the specific program. Next, the presenter will demonstrate, live, how the service is set-up, including how it interacts with TutorTrac; participants can ask technical questions during this time. Then, participants will participate in a model tutoring session. Finally, the presenter will speak about the successes and challenges of the program, including data. There will be time for questions and discussion of next steps at the conclusion.
