ADDRESSING TUTOR CHAT ISSUES
Recently, we’ve been looking into issues involving message lag within Tutor Chat. For some tutors, the site occasionally takes a long time to respond to typing and/or drawing. As a reminder, whenever an issue hurts your ability to teach quickly and effectively, please follow the instructions below!
If you’ve run into this issue, we ask that you email firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of the circumstances in which this issue tends to arise. The next time it arises while you’re conducting a session, follow the ‘Dev. Console Instructions’ as laid out in the bug reporting doc:
Then, email a screenshot of the Dev. Console to email@example.com.
We normally do NOT want you to refresh your browser while you’re in a session, but if this issue comes up for you, please give it a try, and let us know in your bug report whether or not it helps.
It can be tough for our Engineering Team to debug without having specific system errors to reference, so thank you for your cooperation and patience!
WORKING WITH NEW USERS
With the recent addition of the New User flag, which identifies new Yup students within their student profile, we encourage you to become more aware of how your interactions with these users may influence their newly forming opinions of Yup.
We’ve laid out a few ideas to keep in mind when working with new students to make sure they’re having the best possible experience. It’s important to note that while these practices should be applied to every session, they take on even greater importance when you’re matched with a new Yup student:
