Although enrollment in online courses has continued to increase annually, outpacing enrollment in traditional, face-to-face environments, there is one area of the undergraduate arena in which online learning has not been welcome. Negative views towards online learning have permeated the undergraduate honors landscape, particularly at the national level. This case incorporates the perspectives of five early adopters of online honors education from different institutions in the state of Florida. Through these perspectives, readers will understand the challenges and successes of teaching an online honors course. An overview of these teaching experiences, as well as recommendations for further adoption within the honors community, is included in this case study.
