The article presents a proposal for a virtual translation course during which a group of translation students from various universities collaboratively translate a comprehensive piece of work such as a book. The instruction method for the course is understood as a combination of collaborative learning and project-based learning. The students are divided into small groups who coordinate their own duties amongst themselves, supervised by course instructors. Building on the feedback received from the authors’ previous international online course in translation, the course design specifically focuses on developing two aspects of collaborative online learning projects, namely group development and the students’ self-regulation in an online environment.
