Abstract: Today's increasingly global economy is changing the way businesses communicate. Technology to facilitate business communications and operations continues to advance and set the pace for these changing needs. Educational institutions that are building tomorrow's workforce should create opportunities for students where they can apply this technology to future business needs. This paper presents an inter-university project that provided practical experience to two groups of students at two different universities. Through information technology, both groups experienced first-hand the value of computer technology and inherent problems with using computer technology to solve problems over great distances.
