ICT Tutoring System

The Tutoring system is one of the four sub-systems that has been developed under the umbrella of the ICT Student Assistant System (ICT-SAS) and aims at improving students, especially in the fundamental computer subjects through tutoring sessions. These tutoring sessions are designed to consist of small-groups in an interactive environment, focusing on only the core concepts of the subjects. Although, the courses are not compulsory, it is highly recommended for those who want to improve their grades and who are having difficulties in their regular classes.

These tutoring sessions are conducted by students (i.e. tutors) who have completed each subject and have shown their capabilities in transferring their knowledge to others. Each of these tutoring courses also requires a designated tutor course coordinator who will facilitate the course by organizing the tutoring schedule, serving as a contact point of the course, monitoring the course and reporting feedback to the faculty.

All of the tutoring courses will be overseen by the tutoring system’s management team who will help to ensure that the tutoring system as a whole runs smoothly. Moreover, the team also helps to coordinate the lecturers of each subject so that the teaching content of these tutoring sessions will truly serve their purposes.
