Globalization is a key reason why an organization outsources its activities or creates virtual teams to remain competitive in today’s international market. Organizations are utilizing new technologies to become more efficient and employees frequently collaborate by using e-tools at work. Today´s workers are faced with a fast-paced work environment with frequently changing requirements and digital innovations. Keeping up with the development can be a challenge. Incorporating e-collaboration into the student learning process is, therefore, crucial to the modern learning environment as it prepares students to work in teams. This has become even more important now after the COVID-19. The pandemic has forced universities to go online at a record speed and the workforce to work from home. This study looks at the e-collaboration success, challenges, perception, and tools and delves into a quantitative study of graduate students who have been working on semester-long corporate projects in the information systems discipline.
