About the Event
For decades, we have known that learning works best with a one-on-one tutor who encourages the student to keep working until mastery is achieved. We can't afford, or find, enough excellent human tutors, so the question is whether there are technologies that are ready to handle the job, and whether anything is different now than in decades past. We will review the state of the art in online teaching, and where the practice may be heading.
