Abstract: Training and Education in Global Software Development (GSD) is a challenge that has recently emerged for companies and universities, which entails tackling certain drawbacks caused by the distance, such as communication problems, cultural and language differences or the inappropriate use of groupware tools. We have carried out a Systematic Literature Review in relation to the teaching of GSD which has proved that educators should provide learners with a wide set of realistic and practical experiences, since the skills required are best learned by doing. However, this is difficult as companies are not willing to incorporate students in their projects. In this paper we present an alternative: an environment that will simulate typical GSD problems and will allow students and practitioners to develop skills by interacting with virtual agents from different cultures, thus avoiding the risks of involving non-qualified people in real settings.
