As virtual teams become more common in the workplace, a growing body of research has examined the factors critical to their success.  Many studies have focused on practitioners or on students in business programs.  This paper examines virtual team collaboration among technical communication students at the University of Limerick (UL) and at the University of Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando, Florida, USA.  The paper describes the projects we have run, the technologies we have used, and the challenges and rewards of the experience for both students and teachers.
