Learning during COVID-19 was an abrupt change for both instructor and students. However, long-standing traditions of in-person, hybrid, and online learning allow us to understand the advantages and disadvantages of each learning medium. This research project sought to understand the student experience, the strengths and weaknesses of these models, and ultimately, what the research notes as best practices for teaching with different online simulators and Learning Management Systems (LMS) systems. Students from two different technology-related programs at the College of New Caledonia (CNC) were surveyed via Simon Fraser University (SFU) online survey monkey. Fifty-one students responded to the survey. Data analysis compared program responses and also domestic and international student responses. The 25-item survey was analyzed using the yes/no, multiple choice and Liker scale. The key findings from this research were in line with much of the literature review on similar eLearning studies where there was a measurable change in online delivery.
