Computer Mediated Collaboration in an Academic Setting. An Experience on Web Business Models at the University of Lugano (Switzerland).
Cantoni, Lorenzo; Bolchini, Davide
A teaching experience merging many collaboration strategies and e-learning activities is presented. It has taken place at the University of Lugano (Switzerland), and involved 33 undergraduate students attending the course "Advanced Enterprise Applications of Information and Communication Technologies" in the Faculty of Communication Sciences. The experience, a role-play, consisted in developing an online course on business models on the Web (a course freely available online), and showed how an hybrid approach can help integrate online activities and other academic teaching strategies. The results of this activity are discussed, as well as some ideas for future experiences. (Author)
