The Lilienthal project is a collaboration of 5 European flight schools (Lufthansa, KLM, EPAG, IAJM and HORIZON), and the universities of Berlin, Stuttgart and Amsterdam. Within this project a Distance Learning Platform (DLP) for pilot training is developed. Students can study 250+ modules and they can communicate with their tutor and peer-students via e-mail, chat, discussion groups and bulletin boards. In a distance learning environment, the role of the tutor is different from the role of a classroom teacher. Traditional teachers from the flight schools now had to learn to become a successful distance tutor. A Tele-Tutor Training has been set-up to provide for this need. This paper describes the systematic set-up and the evaluation of this Tele-Tutor Training.
