1. What is Live Peer Support?
The Distance Learning department is implementing a live peer support pilot trial to provide additional assistance for students who need help with BlazeVIEW. Unlike the IT Helpdesk, Live Peer Support is NOT a technical support service, but is instead an educational endeavor to allow students to show other students how to help themselves by using available online resources.
2. What Technology is used to Provide Live Peer Support?
Students may access Live Peer Support through BlazeVIEW and Wimba Classroom, web conferencing. In BlazeVIEW, every student is enrolled in "Student Help Resources- BlazeVIEW for Students". If the course does not appear on your list, please email "firstname.lastname@example.org" and ask to be added .
