Send a link to a friend

[September 24, 2008]  Lincoln Public Library District and Heartland Community College are partnering to offer a free educational webinar, "Live Homework Help 101." A webinar is a computer Internet/phone connection where participants have communication with the presenter, who is in another location. Teachers, school administrators, school librarians and superintendents are encouraged to attend this exciting informational workshop about the free online tutoring service offered every day through the library's website.

InsuranceThe event will focus on information concerning online tutoring basics, explanations of tutoring methodology, the tutor certification process, a live demonstration of the service and best practices for student usage. The host will be Joan Roony, vice president of, the company that supplies the tutoring services. She is a former teacher and has been managing the quality of online tutoring for 10 years.

"Live Homework Help is a service the library has provided since January," said Louella Moreland, youth services librarian. "Teachers, superintendents, and students who have accessed the site through our library website using their Lincoln Library card number have given us great feedback about their experiences. We believe it is an exceptional tool for students who have homework questions once in a while or every day. Not all students can come to the library for tutoring help after school, due to transportation issues or parent schedules. This service reaches anyone with an Internet connection and a Lincoln Library card!"
