The benefits of teams in organizations are well known. Professionals in many fields, including Information Systems, work with others in teams. Often, these team members have varied backgrounds. To provide educational experiences that prepare students for their careers, interdisciplinary work is becoming increasingly popular. This case describes an interdisciplinary application development project that brought together students from Computer Information Systems, Computer Science, and Electronic Media. This was the first project of this scope, bringing together students from three different Colleges on campus, to be attempted at the University. Development of the project, execution of the plan, and the experiences encountered by the students are provided. Issues were encountered during the semester-long project, leading to recommendations for educators interested in offering similar projects.
