What happens when American and European university students from diverse disciplines share educational experiences across the Internet? This question and the many related challenges were investigated in a research project during the 1999 academic year involving seventy-five students from eight countries with backgrounds in Information Systems, Computer Science, English Drama, Philosophy, and Philology. The common course centered on Internet programming, with students sharing assignments and projects that were placed on the Internet for the whole world to see. The result was a challenging and interesting experience for all involved. A summary of the pilot project follows. The experiences described were used to expand the project for summer 2000 to include additional universities in Germany, with planned expansion in summer 2001 to include universities from Sweden and Mexico.
