Durham College introduces global classroom

April 1, 2010

Durham College will launch its first-ever global classroom today when it links up with a college classroom in India for a session of one of its general education elective courses, Short History of the World. Durham students will be joined by 16 students from Mahindra United World College for a real-time class focusing on issues of human progress and the limits of the planet. The global classroom will eventually be a permanent fixture on the course instructor's website, to be launched in early May. The website will host, record, and post additional global classes in order to attract other universities and colleges to this twin-class format. Durham College News Release
