Principles for creating effective tutorials

The following principles may help you to create a tutorial that is appropriate for online delivery of materials:

  1. Create a simulated conversation between learner and teacher
  2. Involve learners actively
  3. Work with what learners already know
  4. Manage the flow of the learning conversation
  5. Go from the particular to the general (at least sometimes)

The following pages explain these principles further.
