This chapter describes two virtual mobility post secondary cross-cultural projects which used Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in real life companies. Students, faculty, and business companies interacted with each other across geographical and cultural boundaries. The projects (INTERN & EUROCLASS) demonstrated the value of integrating ICT teaching, research, and in designing joint educational modules to promote cultural understanding. The chapter offers practical strategies for teachers on how to implement these type of projects in their classrooms.
