[Abstract]: There is growing demand from professional educators for doctoral programs that they can access while continuing to work. A history of success in offering distance education programs underpins the doctoral program at USQ but a key challenge is to initiate distance students into the wider academic community in ways equivalent to those available to on-campus students. This paper describes the beginnings of a design-based research project to develop an online doctoral studies community space based on open source software.
