In this paper, I outline the challenges that I faced in teaching an enterprise modeling (EM) course after I lost the ability to have face-to-face interactions and describe a solution that proved to be at least equally effective and appreciated when moved online. The revised course design primarily adopted exercise and assignment work, provided course content in a “piecemeal” fashion, and relied almost exclusively on asynchronous interactions. I distill the solution into specific and more general design principles that educators can apply to other EM courses (and potentially beyond).
