Becoming an effective online tutor

This post is just a small collection of links to online books and other resources that I think represent the best of the online advice available to tutors who are starting to get to grips with online blended or distance learning. Of course there is an enormous wealth of other material available, but tutors don’t have much spare time so this list tries to ‘cut to the chase’.

This post was inspired by a post about the video primers (below) on Stephen Downes’ essential OLDaily blog

  1. Design and best practice of Distance Education courses:
    a series of 27 10-minute video primers by Prof Curt Bonk(Indiana University)
  2. The ePrimer series (University of Ako Aotearoa):
    these place e-learning in a context of learning theory, institutional development, and instructional design.
  3. Emerging Persectives on learning, Teaching and Technology:
    a wiki edited by Michael Orey (University of Georgia)
  4. The Theory and Practice of Online Learning:
    a free e-book edited by Terry Anderson (Athabasca University)
