A Field Study on Distance Education and Communication: Experiences of a Virtual Tutor.
Schweizer, Karin; Paechter, Manuela; Weidenmann, Bernd
Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, v6 n2 Jan 2001

Findings suggest that the form of communication between the tutor and his or her students is a crucial and important aspect in virtual seminars--this holds true even though supplementary (written) social information about the tutor was given to the tutees.
