This paper considers how digital convergence of text, audio and image on the net might impact on the content, structure and delivery of journalism education. It will review course development at Central Queensland University where online journalism programs have been unfolding for two years. It will consider the construction of an action research project, examining how online delivered, industry mentored programs might be funded, offered and organised for journalism students located in widely disparate regional locations. The project, centred on the regional city of Emerald, will review how online distance learning materials might be delivered face to face to remote students brought together by data base analysis, internet interactivity and other online resources.
