Abstract: Global expansion, cost containment, and technology advances have all played a role in the increase of virtual teams in today’s workplace. Virtual teams in an online graduate information technology management class prepared and presented synchronous presentations over a business or non-profit sector case. This paper includes a brief literature review of virtual teams and synchronous presentations, strategies suggested for virtual teams, the process used for this assignment, and feedback from the students in the course. The students in the course overwhelmingly recommended the format of the virtual team synchronous case assignment for other online projects. Lessons learned as recommendations for future implementation are also included.

Keywords: Online Classes, online collaboration software, synchronous presentations, teamwork skills, Virtual Teams
