Globalized E-Learning Cultural Challenges.
Hershey [u.a.]


Globalized E-Learning Cultural Challenges explores the issues educators, administrators, and instructional designers face when transferring knowledge and skills to other cultures through e-learning. Most e-learning courses have been designed in Western cultures, but the largest and fastest-growing consumer groups live in Eastern cultures.

Globalized E-Learning Cultural Challenges presents a broad perspective of culture and e-learning issues, relevant research, implications of cultural differences in online education, and the anticipated challenges to implementing e-learning in other countries. It also explores theoretical philosophies of education, and examines issues related to language. Globalized E-Learning Cultural Challenges gives researchers, educators, and administrators several practical approaches to analyzing and adapting e-learning for other cultures.
