Brainfuse Online Tutoring
Brainfuse is your online tutoring resource at Eastern Florida State College, and it goes beyond simply replacing the Online Writing Lab (OWL). If you find yourself needing help when the Academic Success Center isn't available — like late nights or weekends — Brainfuse is here for you. Every semester, currently enrolled EFSC students get 300 free minutes of Brainfuse online tutoring.
To access it, visit any of your course pages in Canvas and look for Brainfuse in the navigation menu.
