Home schooling just got a lot easier for Frankston families. With schools closed to most students under Stage 4 restrictions, there’s a new online resource that’s available to help students 24 hours a day – and it’s free with their library membership.
Studiosity was launched by Frankston City Council this week, allowing first-year tertiary students and those in years 3-12 to access online help from a network of highly qualified subject specialists at any time of the day or night. It offers live help in English, maths and science, as well as providing essay writing feedback. There is also an option for job skills help and resume feedback.
Mayor Sandra Mayer said Studiosity was an on-demand, one-to-one service that was personalised to suit a student’s specific problem or question. “Although our libraries are temporarily closed, we want to make sure we are doing everything we can to help local families and residents,” Cr Mayer said. “We know that many families are struggling with home schooling and learning online, which is why we are investing in education and adding even more free resources and tools to our library website.
“Studiosity will provide some relief to families struggling to help their children study while at home, and will also help university students who are craving personalised assistance with their coursework.”
