Break into online tutoring with WizIQ online tutoring software
Moving online promises many exciting benefits for both individual tutors and tutoring companies. You can expand your reach, find new business and generate an additional revenue stream, which has the potential to become your primary business in the future as technology advances.
Challenges in moving tutoring online
Moving your tutoring online comes with a set of logistical challenges.
- Running multiple classes at the same time may not be possible with a basic video conferencing tool.
- Monitoring teacher and student attendance and their login hours can be a big challenge.
- Creating a learning environment as effective as that of a physical classroom can be difficult.
- How do you draw mathematical equations or show chemical reactions to your students, if you use tools like Skype?
Video conferencing is just not enough to conduct effective classes online. Features including online tutoring software whiteboard, user management, roles and permissions, attendance monitoring and reporting are as important as live conferencing itself. Also, there are other considerations regarding course creation, IT infrastructure, online payment system and implementation and training.
Why are piecemeal tools not a good choice?
There are a variety of free tools available which you can integrate with your video conferencing software, such as Skype to support different tasks. But if even one of them goes haywire, your entire business comes to a halt until you set it right.
- Keeping a track of required upgrades and scheduling a maintenance is a pain. Rather you would want to spend this time in planning an expansion.
- If you opt for online marketplaces like Lynda, Udemy, Udacity or SkillShare, a big chunk of your earnings goes to them as a commission. Also, your personal image as an instructor takes a back seat.
- Open source software platforms may not be the right choice for beginners who also want to keep costs low. The platforms are free. But customization and actual implementation will require expert technical assistance, which can be expensive.
In such a scenario, a fully-integrated online tutoring software specifically designed for instruction that can be implemented with minimal IT requirements.
