ANYWHERE, EVERYWHERE, TIMELESS E-TUTOR

At a time when university resources are stretched, demands upon staff are escalating, and number of students is rising, nearly every institute of higher education in the world is looking at ways to provide assistance to the ever increasing number of struggling students. Mobile technologies are rapidly becoming the choice because they are allowing more sophisticated uses. This paper will present the design of a protoype mobile learning app which combines web-based resources and human interface to offer timeless tutoring to large number of students. In addition to providing graded web-based resources to help the students, this app allows the students to interact with a peer tutor for further assistance. The innovative design also allows the instructor to monitor the peer tutoring and to provide instant inputs or feedback to the peer tutors when necessary. The theoretical theories underpinning the design will be expounded and the pedagogical implications will be discussed.
