Results from a pilot project on cyber-based service learning in Nigeria are reported.
Students worked on three projects with Nigerian organizations through electronic media. US
students learned the applied aspects of working within a developing country and the different
twists that conceptually similar problems might have in a developing country context.
Community organizations received valuable help from students who were more connected to the
internet and other materials than was available in Nigeria. Future community engagement
projects are planned for Nigeria and Moldova.
