Analytics on MyCoach Dashboard
Two UQ Business School MBA Graduates have launched ClassCoach, an online Maths tutoring system with the aim of helping rural and remote school students and young adults that are struggling with Maths and will benefit from one-to-one tutoring. Co-owners Phil Dooley and Simon Free have educational backgrounds and met while studying at the university.
ClassCoach's online tutoring solution allows students from Year 7 through to first year university to connect to maths tutors using advanced online whiteboard, voice conferencing, homework sharing and session playback features.
As well, there are 10,000 online maths test questions aligned to the Australian National Curriculum. Questions range from easy to hard allowing the student to test their understanding of topics.
Data collected from test quizzes and tutor sessions completed is used to identify areas of strength and areas of focus through the analytics results dashboard, MyCoach. Factors such as time taken, correct and incorrect answers and repeat attempts are tied in to assess how topics are understood.
The cost is $51 per hour or $45 with a pre-purchased package. Tutors are available from 3pm-midnight five days a week and there's a free first 1-hour try-out session.
