The Global Understanding Course connects students from all over the world using web and video conferencing.
In an attempt to explore connection and differences in learning, students from around the globe have been connected in shared classes. Learning from each other and about each other, they’ve managed to grow together and gain a better understanding of students in vastly different parts of the world.
Started by the Eastern Carolina University in 2003, the Global Understanding Course connects students from over 40 institutions. Currently they’re working with groups from Algeria, Cambodia, China, Czech Republic, Gambia, India, Macedonia, Malaysia, Moldova, Morocco, Namibia, Pakistan, Peru, Russia, Turkey, Taiwan, United Kingdom, United States of America and Venezuela.
