Problem- and project- based learning (PBL) was originally developed for collaboration between physically present students and teachers, but political decisions at many universities also require that collaboration, dialogues, and other PBL activities take place online. Teachers design learning situations with the intention of supporting the students. This study investigates how technology influenced the interaction between teachers and students and between students in two different online modules for master’s students at Aalborg University, Denmark. The study aims to answer the research question “How do two online learning designs affect student engagement in the PBL online modules?” The empirical data were collected and analyzed using a netnographic approach. The study finds that concepts such as self-directed learning and active involvement may be perceived very differently from the students’ and the teachers’ perspective.
