Compared to marketing practitioners, marketing educators often lag in the adoption of e-learning technology. This paper explores the use of online role-plays to present learners with enhanced opportunities for interactive and experimental learning through active and immersive learning (Feinstein, Mann and Corsun 2002) to evoke higher order cognitive abilities in areas such as problem solving and judgement (Feinstein 2001). Student feedback suggests that adding online role-plays to the traditional lecture-tutorial model enables students to experientially apply theoretical applications to enhance learning. Possible future directions for role-plays in marketing communications are then discussed.
