This paper explores the experiences of e-learners participating in continuing professional development programmes in three UK universities. Data was collected using questionnaires, discussion group postings and informal telephone interviews. These were analysed using two approaches to content analysis: a coding scheme and metaphors. Findings indicated that: e-learners reconstruct their approaches to time management at an early stage in their programme; the e-learners developed different time management strategies (planned, opportunistic, planned/opportunistic); and metaphors illustrated their underlying experiences of time. These provide the basis of recommendations for e-tutors. Finally, the paper explores methodological issues and outlines some implications for practice.
