As the use of project teams and work groups continues to grow, employers are beginning to value and to recruit those students who understand how to perform well in groups. This interest creates the logical opportunity to introduce both the concepts and practical applications of groupware (Group Supports Systems (GSS), Group Decision Support Systems (GDSS) and Electronic Meeting Systems (EMS)) into business school courses. This introduction provides students with the conceptual understanding, basic skills and fundamental knowledge about working and being productive in teams. This article describes several tips on how to use groupware in a classroom to help meet this demand for team-oriented education.
