Abstract: Deciding to go the extra mile to continue self-development does not necessarily mean learning to assimilate online technology into one’s field of expertise though it has been found that general-purpose social networking sites are a popular venue for peer socialization where goals are shared, integrated, and mastered virtually. Research shows that specific challenging goals if jointly established may be motivating to attain when feedback is appropriately provided. The purpose of this case study is to prove that not only do MBA students master business assignments online but that they also master online pair work. Three critical components are addressed: (a) performance in practice, (b) motivated in practice, and (c) student-teacher dialogue in practice. Case assessment was conducted. Implications and recommendations were made.
