SABIS® Launches On-Demand Tutoring Project
Online, on-demand tutoring has become increasingly popular in recent years as a means to complement classroom instruction and reinforce the learning process. Bringing these benefits and more to students in SABIS® member schools, the SABIS® On-Demand Tutoring Project was launched in early 2014. Students who have not fully understood a concept in class, were absent, or want to review a topic before an exam can simply log on to the SABIS® On-Demand Tutoring site through WebSchool, select a concept, and view a prerecorded video explanation.
In keeping with its strategic approach to technology as a whole, SABIS® developed the On-Demand Tutoring Program with a view to adding value to students’ educational experience. The video tutorials use narration prepared by students through the SABIS Student Life Organization® to present each concept. This engagement helps those involved in the production of the tutorials strengthen their own understanding of concepts as they consider the best way to help others understand. Their involvement in the production of the tutorials also fosters the development of essential language arts skills – such as writing and public speaking – and qualities like self-confidence and poise.
