A Case Study of Online Tutoring on Computer Engineering Basic Design Education

튜터를 활용한 "컴퓨터정보통신 기초설계" 교과목의 e-Learning 강의사례

  • Published : 2009.03.31


This paper discusses the changing roles of tutors when engaging with e-learning of engineering basic design courses. Understanding the importance of these roles and identifying necessary tutoring skills are the two main keys to the success of e-learning solutions. Since online tutors play a critical role in e-learning, they must be equipped with an appropriate set of skills and attributes. The roles of e-tutors involve the social, organizational, intellectual, and technical tasks.
