Computer-mediated communication is increasingly used in student interactions. Since this mode of communication loses none of the socio-cultural complexity that shapes face-to-face communication, gender and sexism is an important factor. We studied three student teams in an international classroom setting that used computer-mediated communication to collaborate on an IT project. Through the analysis of their chat logs we gained insights into the students' gendered and gendering interactions. We found indicators of sexism and noticed that both male and female students were using gendered language. We suggest further research on how to keep students from reifying the gendered status quo in their virtual collaboration.
