Abstract: Peer tutoring models that involve senior students teaching junior students is a well established practice in most large universities. While there are a range of teaching activities performed by tutors, these are often done in an ad hoc manner. We propose to leverage organised orchestration in order to make peer tutoring more effective. A prototype tutoring platform, aimed at facilitating face-to-face tutoring sessions, was implemented in order to facilitate orchestration of activities in peer tutoring sessions. The tool was evaluated by 24 tutors for first year Computer Science courses at a large university. The NASA Task Load Index (NASA-TLX) and Perceived Usefulness and Ease of Use (PUEU) instruments were used to measure the orchestration load and usability of the tool, respectively. The overall workload falls within acceptable limits. This initial result confirms the feasibility of the early stage tools to implement organised orchestration for peer tutoring.
