Online Tutoring

Some textbooks provide direct links from textbook questions in your assignments to a third-party online tutoring service, along with free access for a trial period.

If this service is available for your textbook, a Talk to a Tutor or Ask a Tutor button is displayed in textbook questions on your assignments.

If needed, you can turn off the online tutoring links in your assignments.

  1. Edit the assignment or assignment template settings.
  2. If needed, expand the Learning Tools & Feedback settings.
  3. In the Hints, Tutorials & eBook Links row, select or clear the check boxes for Show Before Due Date and Show After Due Date.

    This setting affects other features in addition to online tutoring. See Set Hint Display for Assignments.

Your students can purchase extra tutoring time from the tutoring service after the trial period is over.
