MNU offers free, live tutoring that is available for extended hours throughout the day. The service is called Smarthinking, and you will find a link to it in the top-band menu of the LMS (Moodle interface). Just look for the link for "Online Classroom Resources," then under that click the link, "Smarthinking: Live, online tutoring for all MNU students." Please be assured that this service is not only for students with particular challenges in some areas, but that often the extra help can make the difference between a "B" and an "A" grade in a course.
For technical assistance other than
Moodle, MNU has a technology service desk. Users needing assistance
with user accounts, email, the University portal, etc. are encouraged to
use the online service request system at servicedesk.mnu.edu. There you can fill out a form describing your issue (please be sure to use only your
MNU email address for signing in to the form), and a technical
representative will respond soon. For especially urgent requests, you
may call the service desk during business hours at 913-971-3333.
