Academic learning can essentially be seen as a constructivist process. This of course, is an alternative approach to traditional university teaching, insofar as learning is facilitated rather than taught. In consequence, learning in online constructivist environments has to be supported by appropriate resources and requires a number of specific skills from both tutor and learners, that is, online tutor skills, online learning skills and specifically designed online learning facilities.
