Abstract

Exploring the impact of the five value dimensions of cultural differences (Hofstede, 1983a, 1983b, 1986, 1988; Hofstede & Bond, 1988) on transnational learning provides insights for instructors and instructional designers responsible for developing culturally accessible online courses. This article describes the value dimensions, examines research related to them, and suggests way to accommodate cultural differences in online learning. The collaborative nature of the online learning environment depends on all students interacting with one another and to insure that this happens all students learning preferences and cultural expectations must be considered.
