  4. 4. What does the Research tell us? Anyone who teaches online needs to have some first-hand experience as an online learner to understand what it means to learn this way The importance of clear directions, well organised materials, timely feedback, deadlines and good technical support becomes apparent as an online learner. I don’t think you can learn how to teach online by attending a Classroom workshop – even if it involves hands-on activities . Its not the same experience and doesn’t prepare you properly Imperial College Staff presentation - 2007
