This paper examines the reasons for the apparent reluctance of civil engineers and other construction professionals to use computer-aided learning on distance-learning programmes and reports on the evaluation of a project-management CD-ROM. It concludes that ‘e-learning’ can be as effective as traditional distance learning and face-to-face teaching, but is best suited to the development of ‘hard’, technically oriented, project management skills than ‘soft’ interpersonal skills.
