This article presents a case study investigated the educational experiences of Canadian preservice teachers.

These preservice teachers participated in a course designed to teach about online teaching.
Students gained experience in course design and delivery, and safe and ethical behavior related to technology.

Findings indicated that projects in which students actively applied their knowledge were more engaging than threaded discussion.
Furthermore, delivery and content must accommodate diverse learning styles; and leadership online must be taught as well as modeled.

Finally, students reflected with the instructor and researcher on ways to improve the online experience.
