10 Years and Still Growing Strong

Online tutoring at HCC (AskOnline) has completed twelve years of service to students. We are using new technology to provide the same personalized tutoring with HCC staff. Students and faculty can access online tutoring at hccs.upswing.io. Students can use their Active Directory student ID (W-number) and HCC email password, and faculty can use their HCC email and associated password. A video explaining how the new system works is located on the bottom of the Upswing log in page. For more information, please contact Deborah Hardwick (deborah.hardwick@hccs.edu).
