Abstract :


This article presents results from experiments with collaborative and cross-cultural workspaces for participants from different countries. It draws on the case of a masterĂ­s program of screenwriting offered by a university in Norway and a film school in Cuba. The research indicates that despite variations and differences among the participants at technological levels as well as cultural contexts, the participants gradually learned how to use the Internet for community building. It is concluded that there is a need to consider online as well as off-line contexts for identifying user needs for tools for cross-cultural collaboration.
