Students who contact Assignment Homework Online have the opportunity to chat anonymously with the homework helpers, who in turn can talk to the student in a headset. In this way, the students can be anonymous, but they get help easily and accessible.
Assignment Homework Online was originally intended as anonymous homework help for children in vulnerable residential areas, but in January 2013, a pilot project opened where students at selected high schools had the opportunity to get help in mathematics, physics and chemistry. In the first year, there have been 1000 sessions with students from the pilot high schools, and the curve has constantly been increasing.
It has been such a great success at the pilot high schools that in January this year, the project was extended to more high schools, more homework helpers and offers of help also in the subjects of English.
