dc.description.abstractThis paper reports on the role of the tutor in enabling student learning through the use of a blend comprising a Wiki application to supplement class-based learning. Interweaved in the descriptive in creating the conditions to support the collaborative learning experience are the intended consequences arising from the tutor role. These consequences were captured through tutor observations and students reflections in a blog. To this end, learners were prepared for the Wiki learning experience in two ways: in class-based sessions and using the discussion facilities of the University’s Managed Learning Environment. Results of a Wilcoxon Signed-Rank test performed on data derived using a pre and post test questionnaire shows that the tutorial activities set by the tutor provided sufficient knowledge to undertake the group work, the learning materials set helped learners to feel a sense ownership of group work and the online activities prepared learners for the collaborative experience.en
