Technology and ethics was the topic of a recent experimental distance taught course using synchronous and asynchronous e-media. This pilot was offered to a restricted number of IT-literate practitioners without formal background in ethics. Offering the course across disparate time zones meant synchronised sessions were limited thus a question posed in planning was 'What resources should the students study between the synchronous sessions to ensure a lively and economical debate?ï¿½. In this account we describe some of the resources that were deployed and what they offered.
