Abstract:In the recent Covid 19 lockdown period, a lot of educational activities had to shift from face-to-face to digital replacements. As a result, digitalization of teaching has increased exponentially, and most university staff and students have become more familiar with digital tools such as Zoom. At the University of Twente (UT), multiple courses are using student tutors to help assist other students during tutorials. Student tutors are high-performing students who tutor other students in courses they previously passed. Student tutors are valuable because they improve the educational support and quality by helping other students with various questions and problems they encounter during their homework and projects. However, outside of university tutorials there are no student tutors to help assist with self-study at the University of Twente. Especially in difficult courses such as mathematics related subjects, students seem to be struggling with self-study. This paper aims to identify the biggest problems and needs of students at the University of Twente during their self- study through conducting a survey among UT students. Based on the survey results and existing literature on digitalization of learning, a design for a digital tutoring platform aimed at assisting self-study outside of UT classes will be proposed.
