Students Testimonials

Global collaboration is extremely difficult due to the time zone difference. the language barrier also makes it difficult to interact.

,

It’s easy to communicate with each other as long we have the Internet / -Internet is the easiest and most common way remote communication;. There are alot of resources on the Internet .

,

Romanians did not answer most of our e-mails. to overcome this we just continued to bombard them with e-mails until they finally answered. one of our romanians didnt have a web cam and the other one didn’t have sound. to overcome this we just had to use the chat feature on skype and our applications.

,
We are from different cultures but as we talk more often about doing the projects, we actually become friends of each other. We don’t really feel like strangers anymore at the end.
,
I known new people and I like to think that I have colleagues that I can count on. I like the fact that I discovered a new application (for me is new) that I can use all the time, it is a very handy.
,

It was interesting to work with international students but ended up being more of a headache than a learning experience

,

Give us more time to work on it from the beginning and have each person record exactly how they participated with the group so their actions are accounted for.
