This paper outlines the steps involved in a small pilot study to test drive proposed server software designed for delivering tutoring over the Internet. The study forms part of a larger project being undertaken by The Centre for International Project Management at the University of Ulster at Jordanstown to develop a Masters' Portfolio in Project Management with Specialisms, for delivery overseas. We are currently in the process of developing course modules and evaluating technologies and methodologies suitable for tutoring over the Internet. To this end, we have used our proposed technologies in a pilot study with our local Masters students in order to gain insight into potential problems that might occur with similar students overseas. The paper will outline the main steps in the preparation, delivery and analysis of the pilot study.
