virtual tutor programmes

'Virtual tutor (or tutorial) programme' is the term used to describe teaching through the use of information communication technology (ICT), largely independent of a physical teacher. They enable students to take more control over their own learning, and to learn at their own pace and in their own time.

Students will usually follow preset modules or lessons in a particular subject, such as mathematics or science. Some programmes work by allowing the student to access lessons online; some provide lessons that can be downloaded to your computer; and others use a combination of both.

Virtual tutorials offer a flexible and convenient way to learn. Think gaming technology combined with educational content and you'll get a good idea of what this type of tutorial option can offer. This is one of the reasons why it is becoming increasingly popular; it is able to engage students through the simultaneous use of visual, audio and kinaesthetic learning and is very useful for children who enjoy learning interactively or who find it hard to concentrate in a traditional learning environment.
