Abstract

A pilot course was carried out aiming to evaluate the relative potential of email and World Wide Web-based discussion boards to deliver an online course in reproductive medicine to 18 doctors training in obstetrics and gynecology, distributed around the South West region of England. The course organisers presented one case study per month and asked participants to comment on it by electronic means. The course was evaluated for its ability to deliver and ease of access. Tutors’ and participants’ views were sought. The information gathered was incorporated into the development of further Internet-based educational projects.
