A record 51 teams submitted final presentations for this year's competition. There were two tasks for teams, both based on an incident involving Facebook.com at our fictional college. First, they were asked to develop and implement a session as part of the orientation program for new students. Secondly, they were asked to identify topics that should be addressed for an online Facebook.com "tutorial" that students would have to complete before they could first access the school's computer system.

We have dedicated the Spring 2006 edition of our e-journal to the final presentations of all participating teams. Instructions on how to view the team projects are listed below. It is our hope that institutions can utilize information from the presentations to begin a healthy dialogue with their students about the use of Facebook.com.
Next year's Virtual Case Study Competition will take place in
February 2007. Registration information will be posted on our Web
site in Fall 2006. For general information about the 2006 Virtual
