There is a demand for the integration of global learning/diversity across the curriculum. A series of cross-cultural assignments was created to facilitate global learning in two social psychology classes, one in Egypt, and one in the USA. In these assignments, students collected data and applied course concepts to real-life problems, then discussed their work on a Facebook page. A survey at the end of the semester found that students reported a greater appreciation for diversity, a decline in prejudice, and a new recognition of cultural similarities. Students also felt that their cross-cultural collaboration had helped them better understand and think more deeply about course concepts. Considerations for using online platforms as a global learning tool are discussed.
