Abstract

This paper is a report of work-in-progress on a project that seeks to identify effective ways in which the Internet can be used to overcome the isolation of human service professionals employed in rural and remote areas. Professionals employed in rural locations in Australia will be surveyed and interviewed with regard to their needs, awareness, use and benefits of the Internet for professional development and support. Guidelines will be produced to document strategies for the design and delivery of effective use of the Internet to support and assist professionals in rural and remote areas.
