The VCL project was applied in the course ”Introduction to Business” at EPOKA University. The course includes a semester project of building a business plan in groups. Therefore, the VCL method was applied to better structure the project and derive more effective results. The VCL took place between winter semester of 2021 and 93 students were enrolled on the course. Microsoft Teams and Miro Board have been used as a main tools to facilitate and monitor activities. E-Tutors checked the weekly meetings of the students, which were recorded, and the evidence was published in the group channel. Also, groups posted reports for their meetings that described the challenges and the outcomes from the meetings held. Drafts sent served as a proof of working status of the students and stimulated them to complete different sections of the project gradually. The assessment of this VCL module was based on the virtual collaboration and interactivity of the students. Points were allocated based on group work and individual performance.
Surveys were used to evaluate the course, with one survey collecting student expectations and another collecting feedback after the course.
