Brainfuse - 24/7 Online Tutoring

With Brainfuse, students experience online tutoring that is simple, fast and always available.

          Open your course
          Click on the Brainfuse OnlineTutoring Link on the left-hand side.    

 Creating Your BioSig-ID Profile

Recent Federal legislation requires that all online courses have a system implemented to verify students. St. Philip's College is committed to preserving the academic integrity of its courses and has implemented a unique technology from a company called Biometric Signature ID (BSI).
 
Protecting your security and preventing identity theft are very important.

Click: BioSig Video Link  to view the BioSig ID process. If the video does not appear or will not play, check to see if your browser is blocking the content.

Access to the BioSig signature is available in your Canvas courses and in the Orientation to Online Learning (OLRN) course.
