- This Task has been designed for use by all roles. For all roles
The Office of the Provost and Pitt IT have partnered to provide the Pitt community with better tools for tutoring and academic support in the Flex@Pitt model by contracting with TutorOcean to present a new platform for students, advisors, mentors, and instructors.
Pitt TutorOcean provides an online learning space suitable for all types of subjects: math, writing, languages, computer programming, chemistry, and more.
Students can comfortably interact virtually with tutors, peers, advisors, and instructors in a uniquely equipped virtual learning space. A collaborative whiteboard allows both parties to work together on materials in real-time. Either party can share files before, during, and after the live session. All marked-up materials and whiteboards can be downloaded for reference.
Pitt TutorOcean should be experienced on a desktop or laptop computer using a Chrome or Firefox browser. Tablets and mobile devices are not currently supported.
