Teacher-Led Online Course Providers

  • Teacher-led online learning mirrors the role of a traditional classroom teacher in a virtual environment.
  • This format usually makes use of a Web-based course management system or application such as Blackboard to create an online learning environment for students.
  • The online teacher provides the organization, direction, educational content and feedback for the students.

Teacher-Facilitated Online Course Providers

  • Teacher-facilitated online learning enables an educator to work with one or more students to provide coach-like assistance with their online course or learning activities.
  • Teachers can facilitate student learning through a combination of face-to-face interactions and exchanges using communication tools commonly found in most Internet-based course management systems.
  • This form of delivery places an expectation on students to take significant responsibility for their own learning.
  • Key role of the teacher facilitator is to ensure that students are engaged and making progress in their online course or activity.
  • This delivery mode can be compared to some independent study activities used in high schools.
