Abstract

This report describes the development and delivery of a distance education course in nutrition with an electronic mail component. The course is modeled after a traditional classroom course offered at our university. The distance version was piloted with nine students. It included a print study guide, written assignments, and an e-mail component. The e-mail component allowed for discussion among students without face-to-face meetings. Student achievement was high on the course assignments and exam. Students reported favorable reactions to the course content, the course delivery method, and the e-mail interaction. This report presents a model for nutrition educators to provide effective education to geographically dispersed audiences.
