This paper discusses the issues involved with the development and implementation of an on-line postgraduate course for remote-access students. This is especially relevant for students who wish to pursue postgraduate qualifications, or to update their skill base, while continuing with their career. Although remote-access education would not be considered by the author as the delivery method of choice for the majority of an engineering student's educational needs, there will always be niche educational demands that can be addressed by such an approach. Although the electronic presentation of course notes via the Internet is becoming more commonplace, the ideas outlined in this paper go beyond this basic concept. The emphasis of any remote-access-based educational strategy has to be on the interaction between the tutor and the students, and not on note presentation.
