I have been out of the office for several days and just jumping into the
posts. Here are a couple of resources that might be useful starting

* Project IDEAL has a Handbook of Distance Learning as well other
resources available for download on our website (projectideal.org). The
handbook is designed to help agencies think about issues involved in
establishing distance education programs, including recruiting and
orientating students, teaching and assessment.
* Adulted Online has a free online self-assessment to help
teachers determine what skills they need to to develop to be effective
distance teachers (adultedonline.org). But it's not just a checklist.
There are short video-clips of a master distance teacher discussing the
ways in which distance and classroom teaching differing and offering
teaching strategies. The assessment provides feedback on areas of
strength and weakness and suggests resources for those seeking to
develop their skills.

As I clear off my desk a bit more I will try and pull together some
additional resources. Good luck with your efforts!

In your first post last week you mentioned that you had been doing
research on distance learning. I know you said you did not have a
bibliography ready yet, but would it be possible to get some of the
Authors, Journals, Books or online resources you have been reading. The
list does not have to be comprehensive, but a starting point would be

Thanks for your time last week. I enjoyed reading the thread immensely.

FYI, for the past 5 weeks I have been working with low level literacy
students using a class that was 1/2 computer based and 1/2 person to
person. I started out with five students, one wanted one on one
tutoring, and the other 2 stopped attending, but the two that did remain
made decent gains according to the Nelson-Denny reading test.
