The Global Classroom project provides an incomparable opportunity for students and professors at multiple institutions around the world to actively collaborate in shared courses. Live, global discussion sessions form a key component of every Global Classroom course, allowing course participants to interact in real time. These synchronous activities, in turn, are supplemented by specialized online environments providing continuous, global access to course resources. With videotaped lectures, global online discussion forums, specially customized course management systems, and more, faculty and students engaged in a Global Classroom course make use of a range of tools that enhance interactions across distances and time zones.

The Global Classroom is a Online Learning Initiative project.
