Abstract: Having rapport with and being valued by others within their learning cohort is a critical motivational element for many students. To achieve that while being geographically separated from others in their cohort presents particular challenges for educators. This paper explores the need for educators to develop strategies that can build personal bridges with their remote students. A case study dramatically illustrates the positive effects that can be achieved by utilising technology for such purposes. The findings from this case study have wide applicability as they suggest that students are more likely to complete their studies if they have a sense of commitment to others with whom they have bonded throughout the course of their learning experience.
