Virtual teams in the traditional classroom: Lessons on new communication technologies and training

Stephen A Rains, Craig R. Scott

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter examines the technologies available to virtual teams and issues associated with training virtual teams. We first evaluate the benefits and limitations of technologies to aid communication and collaboration. We consider the merits and limitations of asynchronous and synchronous discussion tools, groupware and collaboration tools, and electronic meeting systems. We then offer three different levels of training possible for virtual teams and discuss some key issues associated with training. Each level of training varies in intensity and is dependent upon the nature of the assignment and team objectives. The chapter.
