Abstract

One of the challenges of blended and distance learning is to engage and motivate students to particpate actively online. This paper describes how Gilly Salmon's 5-stage model and e-tivities concept can be used to scaffold students' learning online and support the development of a dynamic learning environment in which students are comfortable contributing and responding to each other's contributions. The author, furthermore, presents a 4-stage model, an adapted version of the 5-stage model recommended for blended learning contexts and in contexts where you work with experienced online students. The main point of both models is that initially in a course 1 or 2 phases with informal and social activities online must be included to support students in getting access to the virtual learning environments and becoming confident with the role of online student. Then one can move on to activities of a more subject-related nature. The paper ends by stressing the importance of continuous e-moderation where the teacher encourages students to participate actively online.
