NetTutor's website, trademark and interface technology are owned by Link-Systems International (LSI), a privately held distance learning software corporation in Tampa, Florida. LSI, apparently in response to several controversies surrounding the use of distance education and online tutoring, has taken some steps to assure users of the academic value of NetTutor. Once the question is received, an email will be sent to the student's UMKC account and they can log back in to NetTutor to view the answer. Over the next few years, NetTutor has been packaged with higher education textbooks published by John Wiley and Sons, Pearson, Cengage Learning and Bedford, Freeman and Worth.
The first research on NetTutor was conducted by educators eager to use technology in their own teaching. This clearly differentiates NetTutor from sites like Student of Fortune, whose founder describes academic dishonesty in online tutoring as something that is definitely going to happen. NetTutor was launched in 1996, making it the first private online tutoring service in which the student can choose synchronous tutoring, with the tutor and the student simultaneously online, or asynchronous, in which the student sends questions and receives the tutor's answer via direct messaging. This access mode opens NetTutor to several criticisms, such as the accusation that tutors have an interest in exhausting paid tutoring hours, to get them to buy more, or, on the other hand, that the tutor can rush the tutoring session by providing a response to do more sessions and enable the student to incur dishonesty academic.
A study conducted at Hampton University in 1999 concluded that NetTutor could effectively support activities such as online office hours. All NetTutor operations (mentoring, administration and technical support) are conducted at LSI's main office in Tampa. Students can access NetTutor from the left navigation in Blackboard or from the NetTutor website. NetTutor is a service available to all UMKC students and provides online tutoring help for more than 25 subjects.
The NetTutor team has had shift supervisors for many years who oversee operations 24/7.
