Abstract: This article describes the lessons learned while migrating an Electronic Business Management course from traditional face-toface delivery to online delivery across a six and a half year time frame. The course under review teaches students how to develop and construct a working information-based online business using free versions of online resources. Over 220 students completed this course as a traditional face-to-face class and over 300 students have completed this course as an online class. Student performance and satisfaction remained mostly consistent across delivery methods. Reflections include lessons learned and suggestions to aid in developing a course for online delivery. Course evaluations remained stable during the migration of the course to an online environment. The Electronic Business Management course migration was considered successful.

Keywords: Online education, Case study, Student perceptions
