Abstract

Reports on telecollaborative projects have frequently warned of problems and tensions that lead to failed objectives. To assess the success of online intercultural collaborations Dooly (2008: 159f) has provided teachers with a comprehensive check list starting with three fundamental questions: “What did we do right?”, “What things mattered most in this project?”, and “What things surprised us in this project that weren‟t in our plan?”. Keeping these questions in mind the following article will review a Web 2.0-based telecollaboration between the Hong Kong Baptist University and the Justus-Liebig-University Giessen which has been in demand with students for over five years. The article will focus primarily on the perspective of the Hong Kong Baptist University students and attempt to correlate the design of the project and the degree of success achieved for its participants, that is, to answer the question: What did we do right?
