Project Detail



Partner(s): Jim Crapotta - Barnard College

The implementation of the Cultura project between Barnard College and Universidad de Leon in Spain is the first custom-designed web-based environment that contains all of the tools for the Cultura methodology, that were originally developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Foreign language students use a combination of online surveys, sentence completion exercises, and discussion boards to observe, compare, and analyze another culture. These exchanges engage students from both groups in a comparative approach to gain insight into the values and attitudes of others by communicating directly with peers in a foreign culture.
