Case study methodology was used to describe the challenges experienced in the development of a virtual component for a freshman-level undergraduate course. The purpose of the project was to use a virtual environment component to provide an interactive and engaging learning environment. While some student and faculty feedback was positive, this pilot was riddled with challenges. Five categories of challenges were identified and included: (1) shared meaning, (2) software and support, (3) programming, (4) implementation, and (5) student support.
