Exemplary Online Educators

I like this article from the Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education-TOJDE April 2005 ISSN 1302-6488 Volume :6 Number: 2 Exemplary Online Educators: Creating a Community of Inquiry

In the introduction it says;
Within most disciplines there are those who are recognized as being exceptionally competent practitioners. These people are sometimes called exceptional or exemplary. In the educational realm, students remember these individuals at the teachers who most positively influenced their learning. The commonality of these exemplary practitioners is that they do their work in a remarkable way and their teaching strategies and interpersonal interactions are regarded by their students as highly successful.

I am interested because it is to easy for online educators to just transfere huge amounts of text online and call it online learning. This article highlights the importance of good practitioners who know how to inspire and lead through online learning.

This reminds that education is more than dumping information on to students.
