(Please see attached documents.) A discussion followed about the need for on-line tutoring/coaching and about some of the best ways to deliver it. There was much interest in the results of a Write Site pilot project to deliver online coaching via Elluminate. A Wiki was established so participants could continue the roundtable discussion after the presentation.en
