Erwee, Ronel (2005) Evaluating a virtual team assignment in a distance education course. International Journal of Business and Management Education, 13 (1). pp. 1-20. ISSN 1832-0236
An assignment in an undergraduate, International Management course was designed to use teams to simulate the complexities of being in a virtual team of persons from diverse backgrounds and countries. The paper describes the design of the task for distance education students to compare and contrast two countries by using discussion boards, email and resources to cooperate to write a coherent report. It documents the students' pre-course experiences, how the teams attempted to deal with the task and their post course feedback on the communication and technological difficulties of virtual teams in a distance education context.
