Abstract

This project is to confirm the results of previous BBS projects and to further investigate the effects of a live internet conference on the BBS--a collaboration between the students from Dokkyo University in Japan and from The University of Illinois in the U.S. The current project starts at the beginning of October, 2004 and will continue for two and half months. Overall, the project sets out 1) to help students understand some of the cultural differences that may have existed between them, and 2) to help provide information on the effectiveness of an internet based cross-cultural exchange. To further enhance the collaboration between two groups of students, a ninety-minute Internet Conference is to be held three times during the period. The rate of participation before and after the Internet Conference is closely analyzed to find out how the introduction of the Internet Conference affects the rate of collaboration and the effectiveness of the cross-cultural communication on the BBS.
