What is TutorTrac?
TutorTrac by RedRock Software has been around since 2000 and is used by higher education schools to solve basic scheduling operational challenges.TutorTrac was designed for administrators to manage and track the usage of tutoring and other services on campus.
It can be used to schedule appointments, track attendance, gather data, etc. on tutoring sessions and other services.
Some positive aspects of TutorTrac include:
Scheduling: TutorTrac allows administrators to schedule appointments and manage the availability of tutors.
Data Collection: TutorTrac gathers data on tutoring and other sessions such as attendance, student demographics, etc.
Communication: TutorTrac allows for communication between administrators, tutors, and students. This can include appointment reminders, feedback on tutoring and other sessions, and scheduling appointments online.
Some negative aspects of TutorTrac include:
Poor UX Design: With outdated UX design, it may take some time for administrators, tutors, other hosts, and especially students to learn how to use the software. This can cause frustration and drive lower than desired engagement. In order for student success technology to succeed, higher education institutions need to focus on meeting the demand for tutoring and other services with easy-to-use and quick-to-adopt software that students will want to engage with. A world-class user experience should be at the top of the list for any student success software to ensure product adoption.
No Learning-Specific Digital Classroom: TutorTrac does not provide users with a fully functional purpose-built digital classroom with audio, video, recording, etc. for a complete virtual learning experience. The resources that your school spends should go into a holistic solution for student success that provides maximum engagement between students, tutors, and staff.
Support: In the fast-moving pace of the world today, it is a must to have your customers be able to access support in real-time, in the most convenient way for them. Waiting on service tickets and a having to pay extra to get support or training is simply not acceptable to compete in today’s world.
