With the great advances made in internet and communication technologies there has been a proliferation of online courses and online programs that are in demand with students. In this context, a more traditional subject of ethics albeit computer ethics that is usually based on dialogical learning needs a different approach when offered online. Such a course provides challenges as well as opportunities to enhance critical thinking and writing. This paper is a case study on one such experience that involved the content analysis of discussion forum postings on the topic of ethics in technology to discern how well the writing reflects critical reflection required for this course.
