Online Tutor 2.0: Methodologies and Case Studies for Successful Learning
García-Peñalvo, Francisco José, Ed.; Seoane-Pardo, Antonio Miguel, Ed.
After centuries of rethinking education and learning, the current theory is based on technology's approach to and affect on the planned interaction between knowledge trainers and trainees. "Online Tutor 2.0: Methodologies and Case Studies for Successful Learning" demonstrates, through the exposure of successful cases in online education and training, the necessity of the human factor, particularly in teaching/tutoring roles, for ensuring the development of quality and excellent learning activities.
