What is WTClass?
WTClass is the web portal through which students access their courses online. For each online class a student enrolls in, WTClass contains the syllabus, lessons, assignments, notes, resources, grade reports and communication the instructor provides.
Students use WTClass to access the course work. Lessons are posted by the professor with detailed lecture notes, reading materials or videos. Within the lessons, instructors post assignments which are turned in via a drop box. WTClass also contains a calendar allowing students to keep apprised of upcoming deadlines and exams.
Using the WTClass email, students have access to their professor as well as students enrolled in the class concurrently. So while students may never have face-to-face interaction with their peers and instructors, communication can flow freely between participants.
Smarthinking, a free, online tutoring system, is available to students through a link on WTClass. Smarthinking offers live, on-demand tutoring where students work one-on-one in real-time with a tutor, communicating using a virtual whiteboard technology. Smarthinking tutoring is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
