In the last decade the number of distance learning programs locally and internationally has escalated as academics explore the use of the Web and its impact on learning. However, very little has been done in relation to the evaluation of students and trainers' learning on the Web. Literature is available on Web-based learning, but the understanding of the impact of Web-based learning and the efficiency with which it addresses set goals for teaching is in its infancy. <br>This article describes the evaluation of the first module of the Masters course in early childhood intervention (M ECI) as part of a formative evaluation process to facilitate critical reflection on methodology and content-related issues. This is achieved by evaluating students' learning in terms of content (prior and post knowledge), comparing students' and lecturers' ratings on individual assignments and evaluating online teaching and learning strategies (general class and small group discussions).
