BATON ROUGE – Thanks to a collaboration between the Student Technology Fee and the Center for Academic Success, LSU students continue to receive 900 free minutes each year for online tutoring with Smarthinking, an on-demand tutoring and academic support service. This service has been available to LSU students for the past eight years due to funding made available through the Student Technology Fee.
Smarthinking,http://www.cas.lsu.edu/line-tutoring, is an online tutoring solution that is simple, fast and convenient. Smarthinking allows students enrolled in LSU courses to connect in real-time to educators from any computer and some mobile devices that have Internet access. Smarthinking provides online tutoring in many subjects up to 24 hours a day, seven days a week enabling students to get the help they need, when they need it. The link to Smarthinking is available in myLSU under Student Services or by visiting cas.lsu.edu. Additional minutes can be purchased after the 900 free minutes have been utilized.
