Brian currently works for a diversity and multicultural education training and consulting firm and teaches and designs courses for a few online colleges and universities near Buffalo, NY. Many online colleges and universities require their online students to work in some type or form of online team during their classes to complete an assignment or course project. You as well might not like the idea of doing online teamwork to complete online assignments and projects, but this is a skill that I feel will be more needed in the future workplace. I have talked to many employers about this and they agree that a job candidate who knows how to successfully work in online teams would be a vital asset to their company and or organization. Professor Matthew Allen once said, “There is a movement at the moment to think about how internet technologies can make group work more effective, perhaps less time consuming, and maybe a little more transparent, or fairer to the student that are participating in the group. You might ask yourself what are some good ways to be successful in working in online teams?


More and more jobs in the future will require you to telecommute and to complete projects online with your fellow employees near and far as our society becomes more globally connected and the distance is taken out of everything. Many online students fear this as well, but I highly encourage you to do this because this shows great online leadership skills which employers also look for. He has managed residence halls and apartments, advised Multicultural and International Students, and taught geography, diversity, college orientation, and technology courses at many campus and online colleges and universities. Brian is also a June 2002 graduate of the Social Justice Training Institute and is currently finishing up his PhD in The Leadership for Higher Education Program at Capella University.
In some of my classes, usually upper level undergraduate and graduate level, I do require my students to participate in online teams. This is why knowing how to successfully complete online teamwork is so critical and vital to your career success.


You could even put this on your resume and bring it up in an interview when they ask to describe your leadership skills and to give examples of it.
To be successful you should always start your teamwork early and communicate as much as possible with your other team members. This communication should be in the course itself, phone conference, E-mail, and even video chat using programs like SKYPE or OoVoo. I find that most online teams fail because of poor communication, lack of focus and direction, and too much procrastination.
