The Virtual Student Advisor
On-line multimedia support for Open Learning
Providing on line advice and guidance to our students involves bringing together a wide range of synchronous and asynchronous materials. In this project we have explored a range of visions of how we might provide asynchronous support to our students via appropriately streamed media. The progress of these experiments have lead the university to fund a New Technology for Student Support service which will use this work to support OU web based students.
