The Strategic Role of the E-Tutor in New Learning Contexts

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter

Abstract

Digital media have opened up new opportunities to review e-learning. The three ages of media describe a shift from technology for distance education, to technology-supported groups and, currently, technology for Community development. Reflecting on the profile of the e-tutor in the third phase of e-learning, our research was guided by three key-questions: what functions does the e-tutor fulfill? What tools does the etutor need? What actions should the e-tutor take care of, in term of communication? The research plan, carried out on 9 online courses, is based on quanti-qualitative method (a pre-course survey, a post-course survey, learning analytics, content analysis of tutor’s interactions and self-report). The results highlight the strategic role of the e-tutor in new contexts of learning.
