  • Lots of visible support (phone, email, chat, IM/skype, support documents)
  • Follow similar rules to online support as Gilly Salmons 5 stage model.

 

Activities

  • synchronous ; chat,  editing a wiki , presentations / whiteboards, webcasts - for keynote or plenary.
  • Asynchronous; threaded fora - to keep a record of disucssions, , web quest,- treasure hunt, plenary as a reflective appraisal of the event
