Teacher education coursework is increasingly being offered using online learning. A key factor in using online learning effectively is to design appropriate online pedagogical activities to support the achievement of learning objectives. This paper reports on six online activities, designed for the following two objectives: (1) facilitate learning of concepts on classroom management, and (2) provide a structure for problem-solving of real life situations. The six activities were: (1) starter-participant-wrapper, (2) reflections on procedures, (3) matching hypotheses to cases, (4) integration of information technology, (5) online debate, and (6) online chat. At the end of the course, the participants completed a questionnaire survey. Findings on the extent the six activities were able to meet the learning objectives and the teachers' overall thoughts about online learning are presented, along with the implications for practice.
