I’ve seen an online math-oriented set-up in a few demos of other tutoring
platforms, and that does seem to be ideal. The WCOnline environment was
designed for writing tutoring, and that’s still the case, even though a
few more advanced features have been added. We’ve been able to make do
with WCOnline mainly because demand for online tutoring in areas besides
writing has been so low. We’ve only gotten online math requests in the
summers, for instance, and then we get a max of 2 or 3; during our
online-only winter term, courses go by so fast that students don’t appear
to have time to request help.  But if things ever ‘blow up’ in terms of
demand, we would probably have to look elsewhere or add an additional tool.
