Palloff and Pratt (2007) note that "In effective online learning, the instructor acts as a facilitator, encouraging students to take charge of their own learning process" (p. 125) The author here tries to challenge instructors and students about their duties while working on any assignments or objectives. Instructors should be helping and assisting their students to plan how to achieve the tasks and objectives. He challenges the instructors to be more of a “bystander” in the discussion that the students are involved in order to allow them work as a group and help them understand their common objectives.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
