This paper describes a distance-based collaborative process undertaken to evaluate an asynchronous web-based course designed to teach web design skills to students enrolled in a distance-based Master's program. Several forms of collaboration were used to allow two expert reviewers to share their opinions on the course without actually meeting face to face. Comments and suggestions were passed between the reviewers and the course designer, culminating in a comprehensive review document containing aggregated suggestions for revision of the course. Although the process proved successful, care should be taken when undertaking such a process to avoid stumbling blocks brought about by the psychological distance involved.
