This paper reports on the experiences of the first year of operation of a novel on-line health psychology module. Results from the first year indicated a number of pertinent issues: firstly, students performed in examinations at a higher level than with “traditional lectures” and their performance was correlated with usage of the material. Furthermore, students appeared to enjoy the material. However, there was some reluctance to develop an independent learning style. These results suggest that although on-line learning has many positives, tutors are going to have to ensure that the material is developed in an interactive and engaging fashion and students should not forget their responsibility for their own learning.
