Effective teaching is systematic and well planned and student learning depends not only on student-based factors such as ability and prior knowledge, but also on the teaching context and on good management. Often, students need to be supported in gaining mastery in skills and new concepts. In this article we outline two forms of support that can be offered online which we call initial and ongoing support. Initial support is provided from the start of a course, and faded so that students can learn to self-regulate. Ongoing support is provided during a course, and is based on student input. The examples mentioned in this paper are not intended as an extensive framework for WWW-based learner support, but more as examples of good practice.
