This paper describes an evaluation of a computer-assisted learning (CAL) resource for primary care researchers. A two-phase approach was adopted involving a questionnaire survey and follow-up telephone interviews with a purposive sample of respondents. Results indicate wide support for this approach to self-directed learning, particularly for those with less experience. Respondents emphasized the flexibility and accessibility of the resource, with Internet links encouraging users to branch out. Potential barriers included securing protected learning time and lack of interaction with peers.
