article description
Distance Learning (DL) has emerged as an innovative teaching method and is becoming very popular in today’s education. This study examines the learning outcomes and benefits of using a simulation game in a DL environment. We found that DL brings a different learning experience to students; however, they do not necessarily regard this method as superior to the traditional face-to-face method. The findings of this research lead us to conclude that although technology made DL possible, there are still many challenges we need to address in order to make this method more applicable to information systems education.
