What is eMentor?
The eMentor program is LEAP’s computer-based online language and culture training provided in a virtual environment. All classes are live, follow a set schedule and are facilitated by a highly qualified, native speaking, language instructor (the eMentor) in a cohort of other LEAP participants within your language. You will use a computer, webcam, headset and internet connection to access your online classroom and participate in training.
The classroom platform is called the Collaborative Learning Environment (CLE) and this is where you will access your virtual classroom, course materials and other supplemental resources important to the eMentor Online classes. Most classes will use a variety of materials that will be provided by the LEAP program office and by your instructor. Most of this material can be found in the CLE on your class homepage or in the resource library.
The CLE is provided and supported by PEC, Inc. PEC runs the Helpdesk for the eMentor classes and they will work with you to prepare you for class. Helpdesk is always online and available to provide technical training and support both in and out of class. You can contact the Helpdesk at any time to request technical support and training, and you will always find Helpdesk staff available in your classroom to provide real-time support as your class is taking place.
