Recent advances in technology have brought major changes in pedagogy methods. Distance Learning (DL) has emerged as an innovative teaching method and it is becoming very popular in today’s education. We study a business simulation game in a DL environment and examine the learning outcomes and benefits of using the game in this environment. We also compare our test results to a game conducted in a traditional face-to-face class. Our findings show that students do not consider the DL teaching method to be worst than the traditional one. However, technical difficulties deterred the students to declare this method s superior. We conclude that further study of DL is necessary to: (1) realize its benefits; and (2) address the many challenges the creation of a DL learning environment poses.
