HelpNow provides learning solutions for students of all needs and backgrounds. Students communicate with live, online tutors using an interactive, virtual whiteboard to chat, write, draw, or copy/paste text or images. HelpNow also offers skills building and test preparation where after taking a quiz, the user can connect to a live tutor to review topics and questions covered. Live tutoring sessions are saved and can be replayed and shared. The Writing Lab and the Send Question Center options allow users to receive assistance any time of the day. Users can submit papers through the Writing Lab for feedback. The Send Question Center is for non-writing assignments.


Adult Learning Center is the adult learners’ version of HelpNow, where patrons can access GED prep, U.S citizenship test prep, resume assistance, Microsoft Office support, and career resources. Microsoft Office support allows patrons to ask questions about Excel, Word and PowerPoint. Writing Lab, Send Question Center and Skills Building are included.
