Online Peer Mentors

It's hard to replicate online the campus environment where students are able to ask more senior students what the faculty member really meant when s/he said..... Or instances when the students turn to others who mentor them in responding appropriately in class. Thus the concept of the online peer mentor arose. These are normally students who have previously taken the class and are able to model ideal responses for students in the class. The linked blog gives details, interviews, and examples.
