Abstract: An examination of an online education course that utilizes the strategies of team teaching and role play through an active discussion process is conducted in the context of enhanced student participation and development of deeper levels of understanding is conducted. Based on the successes of these approaches the implications for online courses following the same approaches are examined. A review of the literature dealing with the online use of these techniques is carried out as well as a review of these techniques as utilized in information technology courses. The goal of the research is to provide insights into approaches that will enhance online pedagogy in the contexts of application skills and deeper understanding.
