How to use WROFF for education
Get started with WROFF online education - step by step

- WROFF share a Google Classroom with the student, tutor, and guardian. You will receive an invitation by email. The invitation might land in the Spam or Update folder.
- You must open the Google Classroom and validate contact data.
- The tutor sends an email to the student and guardian to plan when to start and to identify any specific needs.
- The tutor invites to the agreed sessions using the Google Calendar in the Google Classroom.
- The student and/or guardian must accept this calender-invitation. Tutors and students are often living in different time zones. Invitations using calendar functionality will eliminate time zone confusions.
Make sure to accept the invitations and inform you tutor of any changes.
IMPORTANT: We recommend that you have sessions at the same time and day each week. This makes it much easier to remember. Invitations should be created without end-date.

Googe Documents are used for all tutoring material
Collaboration using Google Documents
The tutor and the student(s) type, read and comment on the same Google Document simultaneously. WROFF is all about dialogue and collaboration. The student must be active and talk 80% of the time.
We use Skype / Skype for Business to talk and chat.
Microsoft Office 365 (*)
Students frequently use Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel at exams and when they are collaborating and delivering assignments. At WROFF, we tutor in the subjects using the tools from Microsoft. Mastering the tools give you valuable extra time at exams - time you can use on improving your exam result. So, you will not have to spend valuable time on how to write a mathematical equation.
(*) The license must allow you to share and collaborate on documents created by WROFF. Some companies and institutions have implemented policies which only allow collaboration and document sharing with people in their own company or institution. Other policies may have been enforced. If you have questions please feel free to contact us on email@example.com.
We have created a test document. Use this link and edit the document. If you can edit the document in Word (not the online version) your license should be fine. (Link)
Timezone and invitations to sessions.
The tutor invites to the sessions using online calendars. Online Calendars, such as Google Calendar, show the correct timezone to all participants. Also, the student(s) and tutor can create alerts. The tutor invites and the students must accept to confirm participation.
