Digital online collaborations in higher education are just in their infancy. But, it is becoming clear that there are significant advantages to collaborations that will be realized in the near future:

  • Break down geographic, cultural, and institutional barriers
  • Globalize the curriculum
  • Promote diversity - broader understanding
  • Sharing of resources – laboratories, libraries, hardware, software, and more
  • Sharing of faculty and staff expertise
  • Create opportunities for under-enrolled classes
  • Stretch the curriculum - enabling more degrees to be offered by more institutions
