Online Learning Tutors

Our Online Learning Tutors (OLTs) work to support specific courses, taking on a pastoral role for students that focuses on their engagement and general study ability. They support the academic Module Leader, allowing the Module Leader to concentrate on the academic delivery of the module. They also support the team during module development, providing a critical friend who highlights improvements to the student experience.
The vision for online learning tutors:
