Abstract: This study is a report of in-service and pre-service science and mathematics teachers’ experiences with learning in three content methods courses. The results indicate that students had mixed reactions towards learning the content in an online environment. Contrary to the notion that online courses foster isolation, our data suggest that they can actually enhance collegiality, and thus reduce isolation for rural teachers. While the participants saw value in being able to interact with each other and the instructors online, they preferred face-to-face interactions with all participants. The discussion focuses on addressing the types of changes needed in curriculum, pedagogy and assessment when promoting reform-based pedagogy through online content methods courses.
