The rapid growth and popular acceptance of the World Wide Web has made it possible for social work educators to provide distance learning opportunities through this media. This article reports on a research methods course taught over the Internet to an off-campus MSW program in the spring of 1997. The pilot test of the computer-based instruction is evaluated with both quantitative and qualitative data. It was concluded that students learned about as much research content as those in the traditional class although there was no decrease in their math anxiety. The author's experiences are shared for those educators interested in implementing this technology.
