Our course focuses on the benefits of online student assistants — one or more student helpers who assist the teacher in a live online setting. To assist the teacher, they may help test technology prior to the session, monitor questions from other students in the chat, point out technical issues for the teacher, lead class discussions and more.

The course is designed as short professional development sessions that pinpoint specific needs and address them individually. Sessions last between 30 minutes and 1 hour.
