Summary: This study will describe the challenges and benefits of online learning, international collaboration, and using social media in the classroom. Items of further discussion will pertain to the incredible beneficial transition from SKYPE to H.320 standard video conferencing standard, involvement of students as requirement versus experience with volunteerism, student friendship, cultivating student innovation through reasonable ambiguity, a quick comparison between student engaging in this collaboration and those who are not while completing the same project, and others. We will discuss hallmarks and limitations, getting started FAQs, and hopefully inspiring a discussion about the concept of faculty networking in this particular area of pedagogical evolution.
