  23. 23. Student Support Ángeles Sánchez-Elvira Paniagua “Our rationale for setting up a “Virtual Studiecoach" is based on a belief that despite the fact that media-enhanced learning is increasingly commonplace throughout all learning sectors, there has not been an overall and general Start and Support Study Model. We want to help students on their way to a successful completion of their studies at the Open University and support services are necessary for the study process plus they can make learning faster and pleasant”
