Virtual mobility (connecting through online tools such as synchronous telecollaboration and/or asynchronous digital spaces) has been acknowledged as a useful way of increasing internationalisation for those who may face barriers to travel such as those which result from financial or personal circumstances in reports such as this by the British Council https://www.heacademy.ac.uk/resources/detail/internationalisation/Going_...

There has been extensive work done in this area by the language community as evidenced in this recent publication https://www.routledge.com/Online-Intercultural-Exchange-Policy-Pedagogy-...

Generally this form of mobility is seen as a preparation or support for physical mobility but today there are more reasons than ever to limit travel (such as travel bans/global warming) meaning that virtual mobility is more important than ever.
