Students' learning of computer networks has been studied in a project-based course, where master level students in computer science study and work in teams of six. Three of the team members are in Sweden while three are in the US. Together these students are taking a course that is jointly taught by two universities. Results are presented concerning the students' perception of the object of their studies: the production of a software system or/and to learn computer science, as well as their experience of collaborating and taking decisions in distributed team, of being graded, etc. Conclusions are drawn as to the relationship between the study environment and the learning outcome and factors that promote good learning are identified.
