Advances in communication technologies have provided alternative ways to deliver instruction to learners. With the availability of the Internet as a learning tool, educators are able to use this instrument for course delivery. This study takes an empirical look at course design and delivery factors that impact student perceptions of learning and course satisfaction. Students completed surveys addressing a variety of topics as they relate to traditional classroom and Internet courses. Results of the study suggest that online learning is a viable alternative to traditional classes in the information systems discipline. Students were active participants in the evaluation and comparative analysis of an undergraduate business course delivered in an online format for the first time. Implications of the results are discussed.
