A group of university faculty from Pennsylvania, Virginia, Minnesota, Sweden, Germany, and Finland has developed a web-based forum to engage their students in global discussions of interpretations about print and media texts. In this roundtable presentation, participants from the different universities will share analyses of the discussions that took place to highlight the character of intercultural critical literacy supported by the forum. They will also share an analysis of the development of the software interface, and forum content, to highlight how the web-based forums support easy use and an international e-learning community. Systematic data gathered from the forums and the participating students and teachers provide the basis for the analyses.
