Design of e-Teaching Portfolio System Framework for e-Tutor Competency Management

Hye Jin Kim, Yong Kim

Abstract

In e-learning, tutors support learners through their understanding of e-learning environments as well as their knowledge of the subjects under their charge, and also play the role of preventing the dropout of learners. Therefore, measures to manage efficient competency of tutors are necessary. Whereas e-portfolios are made from the viewpoint of learner's learning, e-teaching portfolios are made from the viewpoint of the activities of teachers including tutors. Although there have been discussions about the roles and competency of tutors, thus far, the presentation of concrete items to be managed in the system is insufficient, and discussions about e-teaching portfolio systems are insufficient. In this study, attempts were made to define the items of tutor competency necessary for systematic management of tutors’ competency in e-teaching portfolio systems. In results, tutor information, tutors’ personal history, and tutor competency were presented as areas that constitute e-teaching portfolios. The competencies that must be possessed by tutors in e-learning were also presented from the viewpoints of knowledge (e.g., e-learning, teaching-learning, etc.), skills (e.g., ICT literacy, LMS, etc.), and attitudes (e.g., responsibility, positive attitudes, etc.). The results of the present study will provide implications when e-teaching portfolio systems are designed for tutor competency management in e-learning.
