Hi Eric —

Neil Allison at Blackboard mentioned to me that you were interested in connecting students with tutors through Bb. I am the CEO of SMARTHINKING, an online tutoring company that provides services to many community colleges, including some in Michigan. We have a Bb buildling block that allows us single-sign-on with Bb. In addition to providing tutoring, we can also host the technology for schools to staff their own tutors. If this is of interest, please contact me. Thanks.
