Real-Time Online Tuition
What are these courses?
We would have to be living under a rock in the Antarctic not to know that there are Lockdown Restrictions in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. What this has meant is that the Boutique Education system that Edukus uses to teach smaller number students in a dedicated, off-grid classroom are impossible to deliver.
With the upcoming release of the Digital Storytellers Academy, Edukus has therefore decided to deliver some of our more academic subject areas via real-time, online delivery.
While there are many online courses springing up, many of these involve the viewing of videos and are mass-delivered to tens of thousands of students all over the world. Q&A is typically done via forums or comment boxes with many questions simply being lost in the swamp of conversation. The Edukus real-time online courses are not this type of course.
Edukus RTOT courses are delivered in real-time by a tutor in the same way as the student would attend a classroom. We are embracing our Boutique Education nature and restricting class sizes to 10 students so that everybody has the ability to interact with the tutor and anyone else in the class if they so wish.
What do I need?
All you need to take these course is:
- An internet connection
- A computer with at least a microphone so that you communicate with the tutor and the class
- A camera, if you wish to broadcast but this is not essential or a requirement
- The ability install free or open-source software for some courses that use it
Who are the courses for?
All of the courses have been put together so that they are suitable for both young and adult, though we will divide courses if there are sufficient numbers of students interested in each, so that each course has the same approximate age level. A minimum of 3 students are required on each course however, to make any single delivery of the course a viable offering.
