Online Tutoring through Brainfuse:

Brainfuse is available through Brightspace and provides students with live tutoring, expert writing assistance, and more. Tutors and students communicate in real-time through the Brainfuse Online Classroom. There is a 24/7 Question Center for students who need a detailed, structured explanation of key concepts or help with an assignment. Students simply submit their questions and receive feedback from the Brainfuse-certified instructor. Instructors must make this tool available by adding the Course Tool to their Brightspace course so that students can then access Brainfuse.

Brainfuse is integrated with Brightspace, so students should see a link in each course to Brainfuse. This dedicated link to Brainfuse should also work:
