Abstract: During the fall semester, 2013 we taught a fully COIL’d course that included 15 students from Binghamton University and 16 from Zhenjiang International School. In this presentation we will present both lecturer opinions and student voices of the benefits and struggles of collaborative online learning and international group work. The students in both Binghamton, NY and Zhenjiang, China were asked for their opinions on cultural difference issues in group work, personal feelings on the course, and how the course could see improvement. Student perspectives on the course allow for the betterment of future international class work. In this presentation we will present our findings.
