Brainfuse HelpNow now available!
Online tutoring for all levels of learners from children through adults
We are pleased to announce the launch of Brainfuse HelpNow™ – on demand, anytime, anywhere eLearning for all ages and levels. Students can communicate with live tutors using an interactive whiteboard to chat, write, draw, copy/paste text or images and graph homework problems. Study tools, writing help, collaboration tools, and more are also available.
HelpNow™ will be available to all library patrons from any computer with an internet connection starting July 14, 2022. To access HelpNow™, please visit the library's "Education Resources" page at https://www.catoosapubliclibrary.com/education-resources.
Brainfuse HelpNow™ offers these benefits and more for Catoosa Public Library patrons:
Live Tutoring: HelpNow offers live tutor access for homework help, skills building and test preparation. Because HelpNow is personalized, both the student and the tutor can access quiz questions to do an intensive test prep. All live sessions are saved and can be replayed as well as shared with friends and teachers by email.
Asynchronous Services: The Writing Lab and the 24/7 Center options give users the freedom to receive assistance at any time of the day without connecting with a live tutor. Users can submit papers through the Writing Lab for a detailed feedback. 24/7 Center is for non-writing assignments such as math or science.
Study Tools: LEAP helps patrons build academic skills through targeted lessons, quizzes, and live, online tutoring. LEAP creates a learning plan based on a skills assessment that is taken at the beginning of the course. Flashbulb is a robust, learning resource where you can find flashcards or create your own. Brainfuse students have created sets to use with their friends and teachers have created sets for their students to use.
Collaboration tools: For students who prefer to work independently and form their own online study group, HelpNow offers a set of collaborative tools – MEET and Brainwave. MEET allows students to schedule their own online sessions using the Brainfuse MEET whiteboard which is specifically designed for a group setting. Brainwave is a recordable whiteboard where students can draw, write on the whiteboard and chat then save and email it to others for feedback.
Adult Learning Center
Adult Learning Center is the adult learners’ version of HelpNow™ where patrons can access High School Equivalency prep, US Citizenship test prep, resume assistance, Microsoft Office support, and Career Resources. The Writing Lab, Send Question, and Skills Building are also included in the Adult Learning Center suite.
