The study explores the unusual situation where students are using an online simulation in an online learning format.
Much research looking at simulations considers more traditional face-to-face learning environments. In the case of the Icarus simulation, students are widely distributed across the Globe and only interact at a distance with each other. 
The project will firstly review the relevant literature on the benefits to be derived from this innovative pedagogical tool and the concerns associated with the use of simulations in business and management education.
Secondly, our aim is to collect both qualitative and quantitative data in order to get a deeper understanding of the effectiveness of the simulation tool.
