Request One-On-One Tutorial Help
If you have more computer questions than Drop-In help can provide, you may also request a one-on-one tutorial session in the Academic Advancement Center Computer Learning Lab. These sessions can last up to 30 minutes.
You need to come to the session with specific questions to make the most of the time you have. These sessions are free to OU students and OU Faculty/Staff but have only a limited availability.
To request a session, send an e-mail to the Learning Lab manager
indicating the topic(s) you wish to obtain help with (please
be as specific as possible) and list several possible times
you could meet for tutoring in the lab.
Keep in mind that, although we know a great deal, we do not provide expertise in all areas. However, if we do not know an answer, we will try to refer you to resources that will.
