Abstract

There are pedagogical issues in dealing with the management of information technology projects conducted by distributed student teams. At Pace University we have been using real-world student projects in capstone computing courses for about ten years. While the courses were conducted in a classroom environment during the early years, the current course has been essentially online for the last three years in order to reach a greater number of students. Findings indicate that appropriate team management changes can smooth the transition from co-located to distributed teams.
