Children learn much adult behavior by playing at being an adult. Likewise, adults can learn much by playing the role of someone else.
In a role-playing scenario, the instructor states a goal and assigns learners roles in achieving that goal. Learners research their roles. They then collaborate via online meetings and discussion forums to play out their roles to achieve the goal.
