Online classes bring together students from all over the world. Participants don’t know each other and may never meet in person. For successful collaboration and learning, it is essential to create trust and a group feeling. But how to make this happen? Based on the experiences of virtual exchange seminars and international online summer schools, this poster provides an insight into which activities and elements can support the process of group formation and a sense of togetherness.
