Schweizer, Karin; Paechter, Manuela; Weidenmann, Bernd
Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, v6 n2 Jan 2001
Records data from 98 German male students who participated for 9 weeks in an off-campus online seminar on General Psychology. 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.
