With busy schedules and limited space, in-person tutorial sessions are hard to arrange for large classes. Our resource centre offers drop-in homework support, but can only hold a small fraction of our class. As an alternative that can be scaled up to any number of students, we have been experimenting with online video tutorials. Students can tune in to a weekly, live-streamed tutorials and interact with the tutors via chat. Recordings are posted on YouTube. In this presentation, I'll discuss the technology, logistics, and what we've learned so far.
