Online Tutor Sessions

Introduction

All students and teachers are welcome to attend Online Tutor Sessions which are interactive events on a variety of fundamental areas hosted by subject specialists who have extensive teaching experience.

Each session lasts up to an hour in total, including time for questions and answers towards the end. The upcoming sessions can be found in our Online Tutor Sessions Schedule.

Live SCHOLAR Online Tutor Sessions

SCHOLAR-led sessions are delivered in an online Adobe Connect room. To join a session, go to the Online Tutor Session log-in page and enter your first name under the 'Guest' tab.

Worksheets may be available for a session which should be attempted in advance. These can be downloaded by selecting the 'Resources' icon for the session in the Online Tutor Session Schedule.

Headphones or speakers are required to listen to the presenter but no camera is required. We recommend that you set up your device in advance.

All sessions are recorded for use on the SCHOLAR site so please do not share any personal information. You will find more information in our Acceptable Behaviour Policy. Please note that the online room is limited to 100 participants so join in early to avoid disappointment!

Live e-Sgoil Study Support

During lockdown, working in partnership with SCHOLAR and SCILT, e-Sgoil delivered a programme of live interactive lessons to in-home learners using video conferencing technology.

e-Sgoil are now offering live webinar sessions that complement SCHOLAR’s e-learning resources for over a range of courses. These webinars give learners the opportunity to:

  • participate in an extensive series of live early-evening study support webinar lessons from their own homes.
  • benefit from specialist teacher input during the live, real-time webinar lessons.
  • access subject specific resources in advance of the webinar lessons.

Learners can sign up using the 'Register now' link at the bottom of the e-Sgoil Study Suppport 2020 page, using their Glow login details and Scottish Candidate Number. The e-Sgoil webinars are currently being offered in blocks of eight sessions. Note that places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

If you require further information or any assistance with registering for an e-Sgoil course, please either check e-Sgoil’s FAQ page, or you can contact them directly by email (e-sgoil@gnes.net).

I liked how it was interactive and there was a live tutor to answer your questions immediately. Excellent!

I liked being around others studying languages. I'm the only person in my school doing advanced higher.
