This study investigates the teaching and learning practices in one project based, online high school course. The focus of the study is to understand how students and teachers use tools to create meaningful learning in their online course. Guiding by the meaningful learning framework, this case study examined the semester long interactions between an individual student and teacher as the student completed a project for course credit. Results from the study indicate that there were missed opportunities for learning, student responsibilities shift in the project based online environment, feedback in a project based learning environment is imperative to student success. Additionally, although tools are available, they were not always used in a manner consistent with meaningful learning.
