Experiential, project-based learning is widely endorsed as an effective pedagogy for enhancing the understanding of theory, increasing critical thinking skills, and preparing students for future roles as contributing employees. Likewise, the use of online classes at universities is becoming popular. A logical evolution of course venues would be the appearance of project-based, online courses. However, there is scant research on whether online, experiential learning is as effective as face-to-face courses. In this study, comparisons are made between online and face-to-face classes of a project-based, strategic management course at a regional university. No statistically significant differences were found in the course measurements of student grades, teammate evaluations, or client project evaluations.
