This article argues that graduate students in a distance learning environment can gain meaningful research experience through a virtual participatory action research project. A case study of a virtual participatory research project with graduate students is presented and evaluated. The administrative issues that arose from adhering to the democratic participatory action research process under virtual constraints are discussed, and recommendations for addressing these issues are provided.
