COVID-19 forced university studies to the web. This paper describes the case study of an experience- based MA-level course at Aalto University about colour-light-space. The purpose is to evaluate and research the used pedagogical methods in the web-based educational environment. The research methods are: practice-based case study, documentation of the course and students work, a questionnaire for the students, and personal notes. Three pedagogical principles summarize the results: 1) new practices and rules of the web-based educational environment, 2) pedagogical methods for connecting people during the course and 3) methods for building the experience of colour, light and space for the web. All lectures, assignments and virtual excursions were adapted to the web.
