Audley Harris
UGSM-Monarch Business School, Switzerland


Abstract
The use of the Google newsgroup and mailing list program "Google Groups" to facilitate e-learning in a distance course is discussed. Despite the large size of the online course group (60 students), the study's findings show that students felt positive about the use of the program and its contribution to their learning of the course. The paper explores the reason for this and other interesting findings in the context of such a large online group that, experts may argue, is too large a size for an electronic group.
