SOFTS Open Tutoring
The SOF Language Office is announcing, that for a short time, SOFTS is trying out a new, pilot program for foreign language and culture tutoring. This program is available for language learners with a language rating of 0+ and above. From now until 24 March, instructors in the following languages will be available in a SOFTS room:
Arabic (various dialects)
Portuguese (various dialects)
If you need some additional tutoring in one of the above languages, you can just get into a SOFTS classroom and start talking with an instructor. If you have taken a SOFTS class before, your computer and internet should be all set for you to participate in this tutoring. If you haven’t participated in a SOFTS class before, you’ll just need to have a computer with a webcam and a headset in a place that can access the SOFTS Platform. If you have any questions about what you’ll need, you can call the helpdesk anytime at 315-214-7311. Just let them know you’re trying to access one of the new tutoring rooms and they will be able to help you out.
If you’re familiar with a regular SOFTS class, you know that SOFTS Helpdesk personnel are in every class session to provide support. Since we at the SOF Language Office are trying this as a test case, these are not full SOFTS classes but rather are just rooms where you can converse with an instructor. As such, there will not be helpdesk personnel present in each room. However, if something does come up and you need help, you can either call the helpdesk at 315-214-7311 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to try this out, here’s what you need to do:
1. Login to your SOFTS Online account
2. Under the ‘Courses’ tab on the left-hand side click ‘Open Tutoring’
3. Select a room that matches the language/level
SOFTS is an foreign language and culture training program that allows students to participate in real-time class sessions online from anywhere in the world. Students and instructors meet in a virtual classroom, utilizing live streaming audio and video along with sharing tools provide all of the same resources as a traditional brick-and-mortar classroom. The program is designed to support operators in the Special Forces community, but classes are available to any active duty, reserve, or civilian personnel on a space-available basis.
SOFTS Online and the virtual vConnect classroom are fully encrypted and secure. Read More
