Abstract

Abstract: Each year distance training programs are becoming increasingly important to higher education institutions to provide new distance instructors with the knowledge, skills, and disposition that is essential for successful online teaching. Sound training guidelines are needed, especially for distance mentors, to effectively train new distance instructors. This paper reports on the findings of a validation study that was conducted spring 2008. It verified the data that was generated by the 2007 exploratory study that identified successful distance mentor and mentee behaviors, factors that caused faculty to become more and less interested in teaching online, the type of support new instructors needed, and the impact of the distance mentoring program at a regional south eastern university.
