Abstract: This paper addresses whether students can e-learn teamworking skills when most are logged on to the Internet without direct personal interactions. We give examples of how the Open University achieves this and argue both that teamwork skills can be learned through electronic interactions and that robotics can be a particularly effective focus for that experience.
