AbstractThe article discusses the pedagogical background on which the design of the online tutorial SÃ¸k & Skriv ('Search and Write') is based. The tutorial SÃ¸k & Skriv is specially designed for distance learning students, but can also be used by students on campus. SÃ¸k & Skriv aims at increasing students' information and digital literacy with the ultimate goal of empowering them to gradually become legitimate members of the academic community, as well as lifelong learners. Further, the tutorial sets out to make a contribution to the pedagogical development of user education at the academic library. The article shows how a general didactical model, namely the didactical relationship model (Hiim & Hippe, 1998), has been applied to enrich information literacy education practice, and in this case specifically, to enrich the design of online education.
