Abstract

This project aims to utilize the power of virtual learning and social networking to help reduce high school drop-out rate and increase college entrance quota. In the pre-study, two sample MCAS exams, along with online review lectures, were given to high school students to investigate the relevance of virtual learning to high school education. The students' points of views toward college education and their network of academic support were inquired in a separate survey. The result provided valuable information to design Tootor.org with exclusive features to help high school students improve their academic performance, build meaningful connections with college students, and eventually consider college as their next natural stop.
