Abstract Scope The recent COVID-19 pandemic has forced many students to transition to online learning rather than traditional in-person learning. Students learn in many differing ways and recognizing a model where students are set up to succeed is crucial. In this research, two different instructional methods in an online setup, traditional and flipped, were compared, and evaluated. In the traditional class, there were approximately 150 students compared to approximately 100 in the flipped class. Preliminary results suggested the overall exam averages of the traditional and flipped setup were not significantly different. However, the exam distribution showed an enhanced learning outcome in the flipped setup. Further analysis was performed on the exams to identify the challenging topics and to come up with an improved way to deliver the course content. In addition, student satisfaction was quantified using the course evaluation data.
