Hu, Haihong
E-Learning and Digital Media, v12 n1 p17-33 Jan 2015
Currently, virtual teams are being used exponentially in higher education and business because of the development of technologies and globalization. These teams have become an essential approach for collaborative learning as well as task completion. Team learning, especially in an online format, can be challenging due to lack of effective training, communication and assessment measures. This article will introduce strategies, including adding a module on team processes, using Google applications for communication, and evaluating collaborative learning processes in addition to the products. These strategies were found instrumental in cultivating virtual teams through this case study of an online graduate course, and they can be valuable to online learning instructional designers or instructors who are interested in applying virtual teams in experiential instructional process.
