Salam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatu how do we manage group projects in an online university? Now group projects happen to be one of the most exciting aspect of any university where you get to understand your colleagues, you get to start working with them, especially as a business administration student, where you are learning people skills, this is the best time to put it to practice. Most important thing that you have to keep in mind when you're working on group projects in an online global university is that students come from diverse background, the student that you're interacting with has a different culture has a different understanding of situation, he
perceives things differently from you. Likewise, you perceive things differently from them. So as a person communicating with someone from another nationality, it is extremely important that you are sensitive to the culture of the people when you are in interaction with them. Likewise, if you are being spoken to by someone from another nationality, you need to give him the benefit of the doubt as well. There are a lot of other important tools which you have to keep in mind in working for group projects. We will come up with more in the future. But today we wanted to bring up a very critical issue, the issue of diversity, understanding that people come from different backgrounds
and dealing with them accordingly. Thank you for watching this video.
