Feasibility Study of Virtual Collaboration Concept of Academic Institutions from the Point of View of Students
Student mobility programs allow students to travel abroad and to attend part of their studies on foreign academic institutions learning to know other countries, cultures and people. It enhances personal development with priceless experiences and provides a unique opportunity to interact in international and multicultural environment. Yet, study exchange programs are limited to a relatively small number of applicants. Possible solution proposed recently, a concept of virtual collaboration and teaming among academic institutions across the globe, may provide the possibility of collecting multicultural and international experiences to a wider range of students. This paper analyzes students’ attitude towards this concept.
