The first part discusses managing software activities by using event-flows in a collaborative environment. Over the years the information and communication technology has become alienated from the physical environment. Centralistic models of computer systems architecture followed traditional social models of central software project management and decision making. A centralistic approach to management and application of software resources is still the predominant model in educational environments. In most computer systems today, large amounts of data are transferred from users or environment to a central processing place where information is created, stored and where decisions are made. This model carries not only much inefficiencies and contributes to serious problems in ever interdependent, interoperating systems and applications. By exploring the impact and implications of use of Eventflow mechanisms in 24/7 Virtual Student Exchange (VSX) virtual environments, we realize how Eventflow facilities can assist communication and collaboration between culturally and time-zone diverse software development groups. The second part investigates the application and effectiveness of deploying remote Virtual Machine Labs (VM Labs) for undergraduate students in large teamoriented coursework. While the use of virtual machines is not new for commercial enterprise developments, there is an awareness of the pedagogical benefits of using VM technologies for student activities in software project development.
