Identification of Critical Time-Consuming Student Support Activities in E-Learning

, , , , ,

Association for Learning Technology Journal Volume 13, Number 3, ISSN 0968-7769


Higher education staff involved in e-learning often struggle with organising their student support activities. To a large extent this is due to the high workload involved with such activities. We distinguish support related to learning content, learning processes and student products. At two different educational institutions, surveys were conducted to identify the most critical support activities, using the Nominal Group Method. The results are discussed and brought to bear on the distinction between content-related, process-related and product-related support activities. (Contains 3 tables.)
