Background: Behavioural studies form an essential component of the Podiatry undergraduate degree. Objectives: This study aimed firstly to produce on-line teaching material in behavioural studies suitable for undergraduate podiatry students. Secondly, to explore students' views on the material, and their performance when taught via the on-line method. Method: A pseudo-experimental design was completed, such that two cohorts taught through a traditional medium were compared to those completing the course on-line. Performance on the end of module assessment, and engagement with the online material were compared. In addition, students taught through the on-line medium performed no differently to those taught through "traditional lectures". Students appeared to enjoy the material although there was some reluctance to develop an independent learning style. Conclusion: It was apparent that material has to be developed that can both engage and motivate learners, thereby further developing independent learning, and that this may have to be tailored dependent on a number of student factors.
