Abstract

This work describes the international collaborative learning experience among students from different institutions in the Americas through a multinational global design project. The case study presented here refers to the conceptual design and prototype fabrication of a portable folding bicycle as an economical and environmentally friendly transportation solution. The paper presents the technological, geographical and cultural challenges of this collaborative initiative, as well as the strategies, methodologies, planning, logistics, and specific tools for communication via Internet used to carry out the project.
