How to Tutor on StudyGate STEP 3. Test the Site
Time to start up your tutoring engines. Let’s make sure everything works!
Here is the demo: https://www.studygate.com/opentok-live-demo/demo_test2.html
There are some buttons on the left. We’ll go over them from the top down, but if the color is blue, the functionality is on.
Screen is for screen sharing. The window size can be adjusted as needed. We know you have big ideas to share!
Whiteboard lets your student see everything you draw on the screen as you explain key concepts.
Editor is for writing code. You can toggle between editor and whiteboard without losing your work, but the functions display one at a time.
● Text chat
Text chat is just that. With your student. Best for accounting homework help where technical explanations are necessary.
This button will eventually let you record tutoring sessions for later review. Make sure you are using good chat etiquette!
●Camera and Mic
Chrome will ask permission to use your camera and microphone. Just click ‘accept’ to turn them on.
If you republish, you can use HD or SD. SD is best for slow connections.
