Abstract

In today's global business environment, business graduates are often required to work
as members of virtual teams. This paper presents the findings of an electronic survey
of distance education students' perceptions concerning a virtual team assessment item
(VTAI) using asynchronous discussion. The VTAI was set for an undergraduate marketing
course at an Australian university. The findings revealed that while the distance
education students did not necessarily enjoy the VTAI and found the assessment task
to be both frustrating and time-consuming, they agreed that the task
was beneficial to their learning and should be included in future course offerings.
