#H800 Face-to-Face Tutoring vs Online Tutoring (2)

Do students perceive online tutor support  significantly different than face-to-face instruction?  Earlier this week I discussed the paper from Price (Price et al., 2007).  The authors found that students with online tutoring reported a lower quality of tutorial support than their counterparts who enjoyed face-to-face tutoring. However, the authors concluded that more training was needed for both tutors and students alike to compensate the specificity of online tutoring, notably its absence of "paralinguistic" clues.  The authors didn't make the conclusion that online tutoring is inherently of a lower quality than face-to-face support.
