The 30-minute timer associated with the Video Chat session was implemented to help support the 30-minute weekly session guideline, and as a cost-containment measure. The Student and Mentor will see a countdown clock across the top-middle of the Video Chat screen representing the minutes and seconds remaining for the week. Students/Mentors will notice the countdown clock change to red at five minutes and start flashing at two minutes remaining. When the countdown clock timer reaches zero, the Video Chat session will disconnect automatically. It is essential that Mentors and Students monitor the countdown timer to make sure the mentor session is wrapped up before being disconnected.
