IT Guides

The main focus of the IT Guides is to assist students with course related course questions. IT Guides are not tutors and are not there to walk you through the purpose of an assignment – those questions should be asked of your instructor. IT Guides are there to assist you through the debugging process that you have been attempting on your own and are ultimately stuck at a specific problem. You should be able to explain what your end goal is, what steps you have taken to try and reach that end goal, and which specific issue you have encountered that you have not been able to resolve on your own. The IT Guide can then provide you with another person's perspective and ask you relevant questions in helping guide you to a solution. The guides are thoughtful and friendly students chosen for their ability and desire to help other students succeed. This desire to help students cannot and should not result in them just giving you an overall answer, but to help point you down a productive debugging path en route to resolve a specific roadblock that you have encountered.
