|Abstract:||Learning online presents challenges for tutors and students alike. Resource materials have to substitute for face to face contact whilst also providing impetus and stimulation. Retention is recognised as a key issue when courses are delivered at a distance and the social aspects of learning online have been suggested as prime motivators in building a sense of collegiality. The Pheromone Therapy online course was designed to include opportunities for social interaction but students demonstrated how the learning experiences which were situated in practice, with opportunities for shared participation, created the greatest cohesion and sense of community.|
