With the arrival of Covid-19 students taking on-campus classes can expect a change in testing procedures. As all PSC Testing Centers are closed, and likely to remain so the rest of the semester, students should stay in close contact with instructors. The key to success will rely on clear and frequent communication between students and instructors. The PSC eLearning Department recommends that all students be proactive in this regard and plan ahead. Students with general questions about online learning are encouraged to call the eLearning Department directly at 850-484-1751.
Achieving your best often requires help. At PSC, students enrolled in a math, physics, chemistry, biology, accounting, or writing emphasis course may connect with a tutor in a fully interactive, online environment. Virtual tutors have access to textbooks used in PSC classes, enabling students to ask questions related to homework assignments and other class requirements. If homework is not from a textbook, the student may convey their question to the tutor interactively, via email, or chat. After receiving a question, the tutor will work through the problem, prompting the student to answer questions and interact throughout the process. Virtual tutors can address multiple learning styles and will work one-on-one with students in real-time. In late 2017, PSC won the prestigious Bellwether Award for its Virtual Tutoring Service.
