Abstract

This session will discuss issues raised during author’s involvement in building Croatian e-learning community. Proposed chapter will focus on how online tutor must act to make good collaboration with its students. What kind of barriers are going to be on the way, what is the connection between motivation and learning in e-learning. Conversation in which people do not see each other is rarely long-lasting conversation. Usually they loose interest to subject very quickly. The same principle is applied to on-line course. The teacher (tutor in e-learning) needs to take all the responsibility and all the time should try to motivate the students. The experience gave us the result. It is collective education.
