How does it work?

There is a fixed schedule for each class. Students log in each day to a tutoring session, where they see on their computer screens a live moving image of what the teacher's writing on the whiteboard, as well as hearing the teacher speak and explain the subject at hand.

Students can 'raise their hand' to ask a question by clicking a particular button on the interface, after which the teacher calls upon them and answers their question accordingly. All students need to complete a quiz at the end of every daily session to ensure that they've paid attention and absorbed the day's materials.

Real-time quality monitoring ensures that the teacher focuses on teaching while a moderator ensures that the session moves forward and that all students receive attention.
