Once upon a time there was a young lion prince called Simba © Gabi Witthaus, Institute of Learning Innovation, University of Leicester, 2014 (slides) and Daniel Ramirez (image) CC-BY

He dreamed of the day when he would be king of the jungle © Gabi Witthaus, Institute of Learning Innovation, University of Leicester, 2014 (slides) and amandarichard421 (image) CC-BY

It was kinda fun, but if he was honest with himself it was… © Gabi Witthaus, Institute of Learning Innovation, University of Leicester, 2014 (slides) and Leyram Odacrem (image) CC-BY

Then one day, everything changed… © Gabi Witthaus, Institute of Learning Innovation, University of Leicester, 2014 (slides) and Angelo DeSantis (image) CC-BY

And when they found him, they tried to lure him back to the jungle. They knew he was scared and lacking the skills he needed for survival in the wild, and so they said… © Gabi Witthaus, Institute of Learning Innovation, University of Leicester, 2014 (slides) CC-BY

Distance learning (DL) pre-online: a closed system © Gabi Witthaus, Institute of Learning Innovation, University of Leicester, 2014 (slides) and Jim Moore (image) CC-BY

Online distance learning: an open system © Gabi Witthaus, Institute of Learning Innovation, University of Leicester, 2014 (slides) and Derek Keats (image) CC-BY

Pre-online distance learning (closed system/ zoo) Online distance learning (open system/ jungle) All students were in the same boat Some students are privileged (haves/ have-nots) Students had little or no contact with other students Interaction is possible – in so many ways! Students followed the textbook/ Students have access to current course materials - static info on the Web – dynamic Students rarely challenged the tutor’s subject knowledge Tutor’s expertise is open to challenge (Wikipedia etc!) Plagiarising was a laborious process – students had to copy by hand Plagiarism is easy - just copy and paste! © Gabi Witthaus, Institute of Learning Innovation, University of Leicester, 2014 (slides) CC-BY

DL tutors entering the online jungle © Gabi Witthaus, Institute of Learning Innovation, University of Leicester, 2014 (slides) and Thomas Sly (image) CC-BY

DL tutors’ fears when entering the jungle 1. I don’t know if all my students have access to the Internet. 2. Moving from individual constructivism towards a social constructivist model of learning – if learners help each other, isn’t that cheating/ time-wasting? 3. What if my students use the discussion forum to challenge my expertise/ authority? 4. I think I “get” the discussion forum, but I don’t have a clue about wikis, blogs, virtual classrooms and so on… 5. I haven’t got time to monitor all that interactive stuff online! 6. Won’t the students plagiarise more? (I’d better avoid using online interaction for any assessment-related tasks!) 7. My students and I are now partners together in learning – eeek! © Gabi Witthaus, Institute of Learning Innovation, University of Leicester, 2014 (slides) CC-BY
