UniBRIDGE Project

Sector: Education

Country location: Indonesia

Project description

UniBRIDGE Project establishes strong people to people connections between Australia and Indonesia. It gives Australian and Indonesian university students the opportunity to regularly communicate and interact in real-time via Web 2.0 technologies. The most important piece of online technology is the sophisticated educational web-conferencing software where participants can actually speak to each other in real-time. By interacting several times a week, Australians and Indonesians can learn more about each other's languages and ways of thinking while also expanding their personal and professional networks overseas.
