  8. 8. Training of Trainers in a blended course Quotes from e-Tutors messages in the Discussions Forums: Ela ( PL ): “ Tutor Chart helped me definitely to declare myself as a facilitator in it's english meaning - Firstly, I assist a group in their learning tasks, but I do not control or impose or set out to deliver content in an authoritative way. I moderate discussions and help participants to elaborate their thoughts while trying not to be the most visible person... I have courses with different faculties and that fact affects my own personal development.” Endora ( RO ): “Very good written the Dossier; I could identify my learning methods to be constructivist, including the problem-oriented case studies.” Urte ( DK ): “The Grid gives a good overview of what is necassary to take into consideration when planning and implementing courses. Especially the Learning factors and Teaching factors - and how they match each others are interesting. “ Sergio ( IT ): “I am typically the e-tutor and I monitor the progresses and I coach the students when they are making no progress or when they contact me.. It is quite a challenge to learn the students, i.e. the learners how to communicate in virtual environments when this is too &quot;strange&quot; for them. “
  9. 9. Training of Trainers in a blended course Quotes from e-Tutors messages in the Discussions Forums: Sen ( NL ): “ I could find here useful information about e-learning and the ways of tutoring. ” Eleni (GR ): “I would like to add some points as it concerns the &quot;temptation&quot; of bulding our &quot;learning community&quot; and further more to manage to keep it ALIVE! resources of the points below are my experience in using blended learning in tradional face-to-face instruction in Higher education..” Valeryia ( BG): “Reading that Analysis makes me think over face-to-face classwork at school. A good analysis of the difficulties that e-learning facilitators come up against could be the ground to rethink all the difficulties that facilitators encounter in the classroom. It is worthy of consideration.” Celine ( FR ): “Concerning my e-tutor activity, I work essentially in the framework of a training scheme destined to improve the employees and employers skills and competences for reception and integration of new employee(s) within their company.”
