Discusses the OTIS (Occupational Therapy Internet School) experience in providing Internet-based courses to student and professional occupational therapists in four centres across Europe. It uses a problem-based learning approach to promote collaboration between students based in several different European countries, who study and evaluate different strategies for the assessment and treatment of patients across Europe. Some of the issues arising from the development of this pilot course are discussed, together with the experiences of the project team in bringing it through to a successful pilot. These have included not only technical matters, but also managerial, pedagogical and classroom control issues, which are often neglected. Only if all these are addressed can large-scale distance learning activities be developed
