4 + Outcomes and Achievements There are a variety of well-documented challenges faced by part time learners. Online provision has fostered: enhanced recruitment and retention improved levels of student achievement positive changes in teaching behaviours

5 …the Maritime History modules…are particularly worthy of praise. Their feedback is full, specific, helpful and constructive. I take it this is perhaps because it is a distance taught module, but it would be good to see this much quality feedback for other modules whenever possible and when resources allow. Feedback from the External Examiner July 2012

6 + Guiding Principles building virtual communities (especially a sense of belonging) recognising that this provision is not the same but online offering flexibility in where, when (and how) learning takes place Distance learning is reputedly characterised by clunky online interfaces, isolation and generally conspiring to make students – and staff – miss out on so many of the things that make university life so attractive.
