Top page renewal and some feature additions

Dear all,
We would like to inform you of some changes we just made to Cafetalk.com

1. Changed the TOP page design

2. Added a "search by time" function. Students can now search tutors who are available during a specific time.

3. The category which was "Speaking and Pronunciation" has been separated into "Speaking" and "Pronunciation".
We did this in response to overwhelming opinion that the two are taught completely differently.
All courses previously categorized as "Speaking and Pronunciation" are now listed under "Pronunciation" (simply because most of them were, in fact, pronunciation courses) but please change it if necessary.

Thank you!

Cafetalk Team

Chat room function released

Dear all

We have added a "Chat room" to the Online function.
Now if students are interested in any of the online tutors they can initiate a chat message with them immediately.
We hope this makes online tutors get students more easily and allow students to find suitable tutors.

1. Click the "Make Online" button in your dashboard. In addition to displaying you as online in every student's dashboard, this will create a chat room students can enter to exchange instant messages with you. Note that this chat feature is completely accessible from your browser and is different from Skype.

2. Please be in front of your PC while you are online so that you can chat with students who may wish to have a lesson right away.

3. When a potential student enters your chat room you'll hear a chime, and your status will be changed to "Chatting" (remember not to have your speakers muted). While in this status other students will not be able to enter your chat room.

4. If you want to make you online but don't want to chat, please close chatting room screen. Your status will be changed to "No chatroom",then students will not be able to enter your chat room.
Your online status is showed on the top page of Cafetalk.com as well as in student's dashboard.(http://cafetalk.com)

If you have any questions feel free to contact us.

Thank you!
