Soliya Connect Program - Group Video Chats Promote Cross-cultural Understanding

I’ve been following the Soliya program for a while now, quite impressed with their creative use of web-enabled video to build connections across cultures. This new video follows a Soliya Connect class through their 10-week semester. As described on the Soliya project website:

Since 2003, the Connect Program has linked students from over 100 universities in 27 countries in the Middle East, North Africa, South Asia, Europe and North America. Through SoliyaĆ¢??s online videoconferencing application, the program allows students to connect to a global community of peers, engage in facilitated, sustained and substantive dialogue, and build respectful relationships across national, cultural, religious and ideological boundaries.
