This paper discusses the software and logistical issues and proposed solutions in the move to a pilot scheme for delivery of flexible and distance-based learning using a suite of CAL modules and integral formative and summative tests delivered by QuestionMark software. The issues arc set within a holistic framework of managing the learning experience in a semester-long optional module in geography, open to a mixed group of students with representation from varied degree courses. Initial evaluative responses to the use of a newly developed CAL module, as well as this mode of learning, are briefly assessed. KEYWORDS CAL, automated assessment, learning, management, evaluation, mixed groups. Correspondence: Dr Raymond J. Towsc and Dr Peter Garsidc, School of Geography, Kingston University, Pcnrhyn Road, Kingston-upon-Thamcs, Surrey, KT1 2EE, UK.
