This paper presents the delivery system for an online construction management course in sustainability and the built environment at a major university. Information about the course layout, assignments, discussions, and assessments are provided in this paper. The course provides a systems approach to green building science that includes sustainable site development, water use efficiency, renewable energy, improving material use, indoor environmental quality, and design innovation. The authors conducted surveys to obtain the students’ perspectives about the course. This study compared students’ perspectives about the online course using a Likert-type survey from two different quarters and a peer review of a sustainability and the built environment course at a four-year university. The paper presents and discusses the results of these student surveys. A quality online learning and teaching peer assessment was also performed. Results provided insight on areas to improve the online course for future users. Preliminary findings suggest the primary area for improvement centered on the ways in which to improve the discussion forums and to enhance the course delivery. This paper aims to provide information and guidance to assist educators in enhancing online education in the area of sustainability and the built environment.
