How to use GoBoard

After you have requested to meet with a drop-in tutor during drop-in tutoring hours, the SLC tutor you are meeting with will send you an email containing the link to access GoBoard (please note this will come to your umich email). You may be put on a waitlist, in which case you will receive further information at that time as well.

  • Use Chrome internet browser when accessing GoBoard. 
  • You can use GoBoard on an iPad app or on a web browser (use updated Chrome for the web browser). Do not use GoBoard on your cell phone.
  • Each GoBoard session is video recorded, this video recording is used only for SLC monitoring. The Tutor Program Manager will occasionally watch the videos as a way to provide feedback to tutors. Videos will NOT be used for other purposes.
  • You will be emailed a PDF of your session at the end of each session.
  • The day after your tutor session, you will be sent a survey. 
  • If you have questions or issues using GoBoard you can email help@goboard.com or slctutoring@umich.edu.
  • You can learn more about how to use GoBoard by visiting GoBoard's website. Scroll about halfway down and there are instructional videos for how to use the system.
