Abstract: We discuss the means by which students collect, analyze and use original data to fulfill the research component of the Internet-based, professional “Doctor of Astronomy” degree, at the James Cook University Centre for Astronomy. We give an example of such data obtained with the 1.9 meter telescope at the South African Astronomical Observatory. We also discuss the use of such data in an introductory level astronomy class at a community college.
