Improving students’ perceptions of the value of online collaboration with tutors and their peers

The aim of this project is to improve the integration of online activities in to Open University courses.

It is proposed that this will increase successful student participation, leading to enhanced learning opportunities for students and increased opportunities to deliver learning outcomes in areas where online distance learning has traditionally been found wanting – i.e. group work and peer assessment.

In addition, advice will be given to Course teams to provide tutors with more guidance on managing collaborative activities in order to improve the quality of the e learning experience for students.
