Due to the ongoing shift to a virtual organization the meaning of online collaboration tools to link geographically dispersed co-workers has increased. Nevertheless, a sound examination of the acceptance of web-based collaboration tools among virtual teams is still missing.

The thesis can be written in English or German.If you are interested in writing about this topic, just let me know and we will discuss more details.
