Shelah Simpson, Director of the Online Writing Center, is passionate about improving the quality of online instruction at Liberty University by providing opportunities for the online graduate students to develop their writing skills.
In collaboration with Liberty’s IT staff, she has developed a program that could greatly enhance the student performance as it provides a technological solution to make it possible for students to request tutoring assistance and for tutors to offer timely feedback.
Using Microsoft SharePoint, the service allows students to ask for either offline or live
help through a simple process. The person needing assistance is required to fill-out a form identifying the type of help he is applying for and an available tutor draws from the database of requests.
The purpose of the tutoring service is to maximize the students’ writing skills by helping them with content, style, grammar, documentation, thesis development, and other types of assistance.
