This paper highlights some of the opportunities, challenges and issues encountered in creating online teaching and learning materials for timber engineering that provide an experience equivalent to face-to-face teaching for the student. It introduces the Timber Engineering Online project at Napier University’s Centre for Timber Engineering in Edinburgh, which aims to establish best-practice for flexible online education for the forest and timber industries with respect to learner needs as well as those of the education providers. The project is part-funded under the European Social Fund Scottish Objective 3 Programme 2000-2006, which aims to improve economic growth and create jobs in Scotland.
