Pithers, Bob; Twyford, Kylie
Australian and New Zealand Journal of Vocational Education Research, v8 n2 p91-109 2000
One group of 69 vocational students in distance mode who received structured telephone contact from faculty were compared with 85 controls. Phone contact did not make a significant difference in completion or withdrawal rates. Those who received it found the distance experience more satisfying and less isolating. (SK)
