The authors discuss their experiences providing collaborative opportunities for students via an interdisciplinary set of courses focused on the production of theatrical performances in a virtual space. The project, Virtual Theater, is a joint venture at the Rochester Institute of Technology between the School of Design and Department of Computer Science, and has the goal of enabling live performance in a virtual space with participants in different physical locales. Students work in teams, collaborating with other students in and out of their disciplines.
