Summary form only given. Pervasive computing and universal connectivity has dramatically changed the way societies function at play and at work. Many tools, technologies and protocols have become prevalent to enable collaboration -globally. However, the tool centric nature of the present environments has placed inherent limitations on further expansion of global collaboration opportunities. In order to overcome this barrier, we need to create an environment that is based on model that captures the true nature of collaboration -one that incorporates intuitive interfaces, spontaneity, and mixed initiative (i.e., initiative taken by a human or an agent) among others. In this talk, we will explore such a system, known as Eksarva that is currently being developed at West Virginia University. We will also explore how Eksarva may be used to create a universal teaching/learning environment that exploits global resources to benefit students and teachers everywhere.
