Hello,
I am interested in if anyone has thought through or created a plan on how
students/tutors might be able to work around sharing materials if F2F
services occur?
I have concerns about viewing non-digital materials such as textbook pages,
printouts with detailed graphs, or other images that would be very
challenging to replicate on a whiteboard in order to work through a
problem.
